The Wardens rugby side received $5000 after winning the Hot Bread Kitchen Lomaiviti 7s tournament defeating Uluinakau Babaas 19-7 at Bidesi Park, Suva yesterday.

Wardens got off to a strong start in the Cup final with first five–eighth Josefa Bilo scoring the first try which was converted.

Tevita Daugunu extended the lead with the second try which was converted by Abele Tu­irabe as they led 12-0.

The men in gold continued to build pressure as Bilo ran in for their third try and his dou­ble which was converted by Daugunu.

Halftime: Wardens 19-0 Uluinakau Babaas

Uluinakau bounced back in the second half when Viliame Waqanivalu scored and kicked over the conversion to narrow the deficit 19-7.

Comments: Wardens head coach Sailosi Naiteqe Jnr said; “I thank the boys for the ef­fort as we just got together for three days and they gave their best.

“This is a good build-up towards the Fiji Bit­ter Marist 7s and Coral Coast 7s.”

Uluinakau 7s manager Ilaisa Tikotani said:

“We missed a lot of tackles and we hope to improve that next week during the Raka 7s.”

In the Plate final Coral Coast- based Ratu Fil­ise proved too strong as they beat Lami Cava­liers 27-5 to pocket $1500.
