THE Queen Victoria School Knights under-17 side will play Marist Brothers High School Storms in the national final this Saturday.

The Knights produced a brave come-from-behind win over Ratu Kadavulevu School Eels 28-16 in the semi-final.

RKS was leading 16-8 at halftime and failed to score any points in the second spell. QVS slowly worked their way into the game and scored 20 unanswered points in the second half.

It was a nervous last few minutes for both sides with QVS trailing 14-16 before the Vulinitu side scored a converted try before referee Kaveni Talemaivalagi awarded a penalty try which was an eight pointer.

QVS takes on Marist in the final at Ratu Cakobau Park in Nausori this Saturday. Marist on the other hand will come out with a strong fight this week.
