FATHER and son, Vatu Siqila Sr and Vatu Jr combined well to hand Flamingos their second victory in the 2012/2013 Fiji Touch Association competition yesterday.
At the tender age of 12 and playing in the Super Premier grade of the Extreme Solutions-sponsored competition, Vatu Jr scored twice in the 6-5 win over Super Touch at Furnival Park in Toorak.
Siqila also scored a try in the match between the two rivals that were promoted from the premier grade last season.
Super Touch was promoted based on their points while Flamingos had to win the final to be promoted.
Yesterday, Flamingos proved they would be a threat in this season's competition when they ran to a 3-1 lead at half-time.
Super Touch clawed their way back to level the game at 5-all but a late try to Vilisoni Vaka sealed the win for the Flamingos.
After the game, father and son hugged and thanked each other for a great performance.
Vatu Jr has been involved in the sport from a very young age as his father is the former captain of the national touch rugby side.
"I just started playing competitively this year and want to represent Fiji like my father did," the Tamavua Primary School student told Times Sport.
"It's a good and exciting sport and it keeps me fit and healthy," he said.
This was round three competition and the Flamingos had drawn their first round match and won in the second round.
Siqila said their aim for the year was to win the Super Premier despite playing in the grade for the first time.
"It will be difficult but it's possible and so will try our best and continue our winning ways from last season," he said.
