There was plenty of top action in round 10 of the RC Manubhai- sponsored Escott Shield competition in Suva last Saturday at Albert Park.

Breakthrough stole the show as the side snatched the coveted Fulton Hogan Hiways Cup in the Ambassadors Grade after its 17-15 win against Navy Blues. QVSOB defeated Covenant Red 29-10 to win the Naboutini Koroturaga Grade Cup.

Army and National Fire Authority (NFA) in the Premier Grade won their games after a second-half fightback.

But defending champions Police Blues had to settle for a 24-24 draw against Covenant Blues.

Army defeated Harlequins 22-15, NFA made a strong comeback with the mixture of young and experienced campaigners to beat Raiwaqa 22-8.

Suva Rugby Union secretary Mitieli Waqa said the competition was tough.

“Most of the teams were playing without their senior players who are with the provincial side and the Vodafone Flying Fijians.
