Bera Colati- captained Food King- sponsored Dratabu Rugby side defeated Vunamaolo 26-9 in round three of the Nadi Rugby Union competition at Prince Charles Park, Nadi.

Centre Sevuloni Vurabere scored two tries for Dratabu as they led 19-6 at halftime.

The other two tries were scored by hardworking number 8 Serevi Vula, and flanker Iliaseri Gale.

The result has taken Dratabu to the top of their pool after winning all their three club games.

The side also had Solomoni Nata (wing), Timoci Navoko (full-back), and flanker Sokonaia Viriviri.

Dratabu coach Sosoceni Baravilala said, “We really needed the win to come our way.

“The boys stepped up their performance after their morale was boosted with the support of Food King Supermarket.”

Baravilala added that they were looking forward to the remainder of their pool matches once the lockdown was lifted.

“Our objective is to win and make progress,” he added.

Dratabu is the home of Olympians Kitione Taliga and Samisoni Viriviri.

Nadi Rugby Union treasurer and competition coordinator Jeff Tamata confirmed that clubs Nasesevia and Korovuto have been suspended due to disciplinary issues.

He added the NRU does not condone the assaulting of match officials.
