Tailevu had the opportunities to score but the Macuata stood strong in defence.

Tailevu up the momentum in the second half with a try to centre Ra­vuama Tagitaginimoce which was converted by Rokotuisawa.

Comments:

Macuata head coach Sevania Na­nuku said;

“I thank the boys for their hard work and we played a good game. We now look forward to our next game.”

Tailevu rugby manager Levani Matea said; “Even though we won, we did not play according to plan. We were penalised a lot and disci­pline is one area we need to work on.”
