Police Blue halfback Teri Tamani scored their lone try and dedicated the 7-5 victory to their cook Manoa Qorotolu, who died a few days ago.

Police Blue won the first leg of the Super Sevens Series at Lawaqa Park, Sigatoka, last night.

They edged a strong Raiwasa Taveuni side in the Cup final.

“We worked hard for the past few weeks to reach the final and we thank God for the win,” Tamani said.

“I dedicate this win to our supporters back home and my try to the late Manoa. He was our team cook and played a major role in our preparation.”

The gutsy halfback said he needs to do more work on his fitness.

“I’ll go back and see areas I need to work on,” he added.

In the women’s final, Mt Carmel was thrashed 0-15 by Mt Masada. Both teams included the Fijiana 7s training squad members.

The second leg will be held on February 19-20 at Prince Charles Park in Nadi.

Meanwhile, Police Blue now lead the series points table

FRU manager operations, Sale Sorovaki said Yamacia would not be part of the next series.

“The team to replace Yamacia will be confirmed later,” he added.
