Comments: Lautoka Rugby Union official Sireli Bulicokocoko, “I would like to thank the boys for their hard work. We had to make last minute changes to our line-up after 13 of our players that we had registered were not allowed to play.

“I would like to thank the boys who played for the Skipper Cup competition for availing themselves to play for the team.

“We came in today with high respect to the Bulls not knowing of what to expect from them.”

North Bull head coach Manasa Radrotini, “I would like to thank the boys for their effort as Lautoka is not an easy team.”
