Covenant Brothers won the Escott Shield after defeat­ing holders Fresh’et Navy 17-15 at Bidesi Park in Suva, yes­terday.

Sakiusa Matai and Rusiate Vodo scored tries for Covenant Brothers, which were converted and then the side added a pen­alty in the second half.

Covenant Brothers coach Te­vita Fifita was grateful with the performance.

“I am overwhelmed with the effort and thank our fami­lies and friends for their assistance,”Fifita said.

“It was not an easy game for us because we just had two weeks to prepare.

“The team has been participat­ing in local 7s tournaments.”

Fifita said the team played rugby to utilise their God-given talent.

“We try to share the gospel through rugby and emphasise that everything is possible if you trust the Lord,” he said.

“As usual, everybody is excited with the win and we thank God.”
