Naitasiri Lose 4 Points

BLK Naitasiri lost four points after fielding an unregistered player against Ovalau in the 2015 Skipper Cup competition.

This was confirmed by Fiji Rugby Union chief executive officer Radrodro Tabualevu.

Naitasiri thumped Ovalau 22-12 on June 6, but Ovalau filed a complaint against Naitasiri for fielding an unregistered player – Epeli Naititokovai..

The FRU Games Committee found the Ovalau’s complaint valid as Naititokovai was registered under Savura Rugby Club and had not followed the proper release protocols. The committee has ruled that the bonus four points that Naitasiri won would now be awarded to Ovalau.

Naitasiri has dropped down to seventh spot with a total of nine points while Ovalau is sitting on eighth position with nine points..
