Winger Aminio Naseyara scored a double to help Nadi beat Rewa 25-12 in their Skipper Fiji Rugby Championship clash at Burebasaga grounds, this afternoon.

What happened: It was a slow start as both teams were scoreless until the 17th minute.

Nadi took a 3-0 lead from a penalty converted by first five eighth Viliame Vibote.

They further extended their lead to 8-0 with their first try to lock and captain Siva Lumelume in the 30th minute.

In the 43rd minute, Rewa fullback Glen Cakautini scored their first try while the conversion went wide.

Halftime: Rewa 5-8 Nadi.

Both teams started strongly. Rewa guarded their territory well, denying Nadi the chance to score despite three scrums close to their tryline.

Naseyara saw a gap in Rewa defence in the 59th minute and dived at the corner for their second try. The conversion missed as they led 13-5

Naseyara dived over for his second try in the 72nd minute and extended their lead to 18-5.
Rewa replied with a converted try by No.8 Apolosi Tamata and converted by Saula Lovetia, however they were still six points behind.

In the 81st minute, Nadi scored another try through flanker Jaoti Koromataitini and Vilive Aria converted for a 25-12 win.
