Bligh Roosters 20 Knights 33
The Sharks will host the Crusaders next week in the first Colonial Cup semi-final to be held outside of Viti Levu, whilst the Knights have the pleasure of hosting the Highlanders in the other semi-final.

The Sharks stunned the Highlanders 24-20 in Suva on Saturday despite playing for 65 minutes with only 14 men; and in Tavua the Knights piled up a 33-20 win over the Bligh Roosters to grab second place in the table on points difference ahead of the Highlanders.

The Knights' victory also means that the Stallions miss out on the semi-finals for the first time in Colonial Cup history.

The semi-finals will be played next Friday and Saturday with the venues to be confirmed by the Fiji Rugby Union on Tuesday.

Quotes:


Eddie Waqa (Knights coach):
"I am proud at the way the boys played. We came to win and our aim was to get into the semi-finals. And the bonus point win was to be a
bonus for us."

Manasa Bari (Bligh Roosters coach):
"Despite the loss I am happy with the boys' performance today. We did not play as well as we wanted to in the second half but all the same I take my hat off to the boys for their effort this season."
