Army’s Kelemete Koroidimuri and Alasio Naduva scored a try each in the second spell to upset defending champions Police 14-5 in the final pool play of the Mana Whey Fiji Coral Coast 7s at Lawaqa Park in Sigatoka yesterday.

This is after Police took the lead 5-0 through a try from Ifereimi Tovilevu.

Police included seasoned reps Manueli Laqai, Sitiveni Waqa, Eroni Sau and Livai Ikanikoda while Army featured national 7s squad members Paula Dranisikulu, Jone Saunivalu and Joseva Basudra.

“We are prepared for the final,” Army captain Aminisitai Nava said.

Police skipper Josevata Bole said they would need to bounce back today.

“Don’t count us out as yet, we need to settle down and play smart,” Bole said.

“We lost to a good Army side.”

Army, Wardens and First Light Taveuni were the only unbeaten teams after the first day.
