We now have come to the end of the Rugby League Season and 3 out of 4 teams from Tupou College will be playing for the final playoffs tomorrow. The Surprise Lost of the Under 19 side to Tupou High School was somehow appreciated by Tupou Old Boys because of the Golden Jubilee this year. It is now the under 13’s, under 15’s and the under 17’s whom will be taking the stage at the Tonga College ‘Mana Mo’ui’ sports grounds.
The history of the two schools all the way back to 1909. This year the two sides have met and the outcome was convincing enough to tell the winners but as the saying goes “It is not over until the fat lady sings” or “it is not over until the referee blows the whistle.”
The Under 13 lost their their round robin game to Tonga college by 3 tries to 1. Mesake Toumohuni is confident enough to take the shield back home. Christopher Puli’uvea has worked hard to shape the boys to a final of which the kids will never forget.Tu’akoi Havea the under 15 captain is also confident enough to show off the skills of the boys of which ‘A ki he Lotu Vailea have taught them this year. The under 17’s remains unbeatable under the direction of Kelisimi ‘Atiola and together with the charisma of Kepu Tu’ifua they will try to rule the field as they have always did.
Lets just hope that tomorrow will be a day these mighty boys will wipe the tears of the senior from the surprise lost last Tuesday.
