The Heron State after thrashing Ratu Navula College 27-3 in the quarter-finals will now work on their weak areas to try and take out the Kaunikuila boys at Lawaqa Park.

RKS principal Peni Senikarawa said the game against Marist should be tight.

SENIKARAWA: “Marist is Marist they total dominate the games against LMS for us it is going to be a tussle. In our zone meet with LMS we have been winning with a tiny margin but looking at the way Marist played and how they totally dominated its gong to be a challenge next week.”

He said after watching Marist play their quarter-final match the side knows which areas to tackle and which ones to better.

SENIKARAWA: “We just have to work to what we have seen with Marist today (last Saturday), and Ratu Navula College is a different kind we had respected them as they are a former champion, and we know it is going to be tough. We are prepared for that but looking at what Marist showed  it is going to be a total different overview of our preparation so as to counter the very excellent displayed by Marist.”

He also said they have a new set of young players in the team.

SENIKARAWA: “This is age group rugby. The team that won the game had already left this is a new pack all together all are the new player, and this is the first experience for them so it is going to be a good match-up next week.”

MBHS coach Koroi Matanadigo told newswire that they had learned a lot after their 28-3 victory over Lelean.

MATANADIGO: “There are many things to improve on it was good that Lelean has brought with them the competition, it had made us notice the areas that need to be improved. All the teams are equal with their preparation, and we won’t underestimate any of them.”

In another under 18 match Nasinu will take on Queen Victoria School.
