Meanwhile, the QVS Under 18 side will try and defend the Deans trophy from the in-form RKS side.

The two sides have met three times this year with RKS having won twice and lost once.

History tells us that QVS first won the Deans Trophy in 1939 and they have won more times than any other school with 22 title and are currently the defending champion.

RKS has won the trophy 20 times, drawn 5 times and holds the record for the longest defence of the Deans Trophy from 1980 to 1985.

RKS again won the Trophy in 2015 after a lapse of 10 years since sharing with Suva Grammar School in 2005.

The winner will walk away with $5000.

The Under 18 rugby final between RKS and QVS kicks off at 5.30 this afternoon at the ANZ stadium and you can catch the live commentary on our sister station Viti FM on 92.2FM.
