The Ulaiyasi Lawavou-cap­tained BLK Nadroga side scored 10 unanswered tries in the 62-0 bonus victory over War­wick Navosa in the Skipper Cup Premiership match at the Lawaqa Park in Sigatoka yesterday.

What happened:

The Stallions started well with two tries to winger Pio Mua, first five-eight Jiuta Lutumailagi and two conversions kicked by fullback Josese Kurokavu.

Navosa with Loma Delai, Limani­vai Driu, Serupepeli Kunalagi, Pen­ioni Nayaya and Eroni Bakabaka had few chances but the Nadroga defence was too tough to crack.

Halftime:

Nadroga 24-0 Navosa

Nadroga again showed how rugby is played at Skipper Cup Premier­ship level with tries to flanker Se­vuloni Tawake (2), winger Viliame Bolalailai and Kurokavu kicked a conversion.

Kalivati Volavola, Tomasi Naiduki and prop Setefano Somoca came off the bench to score a try each.

Halfback Sakiusa Gavidi also came off the bench to kick three conversions.

Big Play:

Lawavou marshalled his troops well.

Star Turn:

Lutumailagi and Mua read the game well.

Comments:

Nadroga skipper Ulaiyasi Lawa­vou said, “Navosa gave us a good game and we wish them well in fu­ture. We face Naitasiri next and it will be tough as it will be played at their own turf.”

Navosa skipper Joji Nareki said, “I thank the boys. But we will not lose hope and focus on our next game.”
