The final round of the Vodafone Cup 2014 Top Eight competition Suva Zone got underway at Suva Grammar School yesterday.

Fiji National Rugby League development manager Joe Rabele said the top teams would compete for the top slots during next weekend’s playoffs.

“The top two teams in the competition will take break while the bottom two teams get demoted and the remaining four teams will compete in the quarterfinals.”

Meanwhile, Topline Warriors didn’t turn up for the opening match leading to games officials awarding a win by default to Lami Steelers. The second win by default was awarded to Topline Warriors, ironically enough, later when KBL Saru Dragons were a no show.

However, that did not deter the other teams from making the most of the day. Pack leader Nabua Broncos claimed the first win of the day with a 30-20 victory over the Police Sharks followed by Burenitu Cowboys thumping Fair Trade Makoi Bulldogs 24-14.

In the U16 grade, Makoi Bulldogs defeated Nakasi Rabbitohs 14-4 in the first match while S.Nair Davuilevu Knights won 10-6 over Nakasi Bulldogs. Dee Cees Nadera Panthers won the first U18 game 18-4 over Nabua Broncos.

Narere Eels topped Nakasi Rabbitohs in the second game 16-6 while S.Nair Davuilevu Knights tallied an identical 10-6 win over Makoi Bulldogs as the U16 side had done to the Nakasi Rabbitohs earlier.

Meanwhile, the Pacific Energy Kinoya Sea Eagles rounded up the U18 competition with a 20-4 win over the Wailada Warriors.

In the final match of the day, Sabeto Roosters added a another win to their belt with a 22-14 victory over Dee Cees Nadera Panthers, booking the second slot in the top two and earning a break next weekend alongside current number one team Saru Dragons.
