The visitors regrouped well in the second half and scored two tries through Epeli Koroi and Lino Hills with Maritino Tuqio successful with one conversion.

But Police Navua scored their second try in the final minute through Simione Mekemeke which was converted by Etuate Nete.

The game went into extra time with Petero Kelevanua sealing the win.
