Former national 7s captain Emosi Vucago spearheaded the Nadroga rugby side as they walloped North­land 40-13 in their Skipper Cup Premier­ship clash at Ratu Cakobau Park, Nau­sori last night.

Vucago scored a try while former Fijian 7s winger Joeli Lutumailagi scored twice for the Stallions.

Speaking to SUNsports, Vucago said they knew how important this match was giv­en their two early losses to Nadi and Suva.

“It’s like a new start for the team,” the plucky halfback said.

“We have mixture of players now as some senior players have come in to sup­port the young ones.

“This was an important win for us be­cause of our standing on the points table.

“It was a tough start for us in the first two games but our squad is a development one and the results will slowly come.”

Nadroga captain Aca Simolo and North­land centre Kilione Sisiwa were red card­ed mid-way in the second half after being involved in a scuffle.
