It was one of the happiest days for Nadi Under-14 captain Mikaele Vakadei when he hoisted Vodafone West Kids Rugby Festival title at Churchill Park, Lautoka yesterday.

Vakadei told SUNsports that winning the trophies was one of the biggest achievements of his life.

He loved his rugby but captaining a winning side was indeed fulfilling one to his dreams.

“It is the biggest achievement of my life as the captain,” said Vakadei.

They beat a determined West Coast side 14-0 as their fans went into a frenzy. Vakadei said it was tough match in the final.

“It was quite a challenge for us. However we did what we always do best and that was to stick to our game plan.”

Vakadei said he had instructed his team-mates to work on their defence as they scored all their points in the first half.

“After the early lead, we planned our defensive strategies and it worked for us.”

“West Coast did try to attack in the second half but we managed to hold them back and hold on to our lead,” he added.

Nadi U14 coach Ilaitia Momo said that they had come with a mission and that was to defend the trophy.
