What happened:

Defending champions Nadroga scored eight tries in a one-sided affair.

Halfback Sakiusa Gavidi scored in the 32nd  minute and veteran wing Joeli Lutumailagi scoring four minutes later. Fullback Tikilaci Vuibau kicked a conversion and two penalties.

Namosi first five eighth Kitione Taliga scored a penalty and conversion to flanker Rusiate Tadulala’s try.

Halftime: Nadroga 28 – 10 Namosi.

Nadroga’s hard work was rewarded with try by Tikilaci which was converted by Waqatabu.

Referee Johnson Lee sent Setefano Somoca and Vaione Tegu to the sin bin for unprofessional behaviour.

Nadroga’s Eremasi Radrorado scored after a poor scrum by Namosi.

In a space of seven minutes,  flanker Sekonaia Kalou ran 80 metres to score after intercepting a pass.

Star turn: Sekonaia Kalou played a man-of-the- match performance.

Big play: Apisalome Waqatabu high work rate on the wing.

Nadroga captain Nemani Nagusa said, “I thank God for giving us this win as only one team will come out victorious.”

Namosi captain Risiate Tadulala said, “It was tough and we are proud to be in the final..”
