Big Win For Killa, Gata

Lion Killa and Giant Gata won their games during the 2015 Australia Football League (AFL) Fiji Premiership Cup competition last Saturday.

Lion Killa beat Swans Rerevaki 102-38 who was previously unbeaten while Giant Gata pulled their first win of the season with a 92-48 win over Cats Kaukauwa at the USP grounds.

AFL Fiji national coach Myke Ted Leahy said the Swans got the wake-up call they needed.

“The Lions have reinforced their early favouritism to take the 2015 AFL Fiji Premiership Cup,”he said.

“The Swans were undermanned and their preparation was unprofessional with many players arriving late. And this showed on the field as the Lions kicked away to an early lead despite facing a strong wind.

“In previous weeks the Swans have been able to use superior speed and fitness to overrun opponents late in games. But last weekend they were taught a lesson in disciplined football by a well-drilled Lions.”

With a new Giant Gata side, Leahy said the team could be a force to beat as they have started to settle in to the competition.

“The many new faces in the Gata team have started to gel and they will be a force to be reckoned with.

“The Gata have shown plenty of brilliance early in the season, but in this match against Cats Kaukauwa, they added some steeliness to the fast and open brand of football that they are known for.

“Both of these sides are on the way up and will be providing a big challenge to the top teams over the coming weeks.” he said.

The women’s match between Qio Vula and Royal Eagles has been postponed to Thursday 4.30pm at Albert Park, Suva.
