NATIONAL beach volleyball rep Waisale Suka put on his indoor volleyball shoes yesterday to help his Veiyanuyanu side to a 3-0 win over Crossroads in the University of the South Pacific Islanders Volleyball competition.

Suka combined well with setter Alikisadro Naisara, middle blocker Asaeli Matairavula and power spiker Noa Raiyawa to score 25-19, 25-20 and 25-17 in the three set victory at the USP indoor gym.

This was the round two competition and the second win for the side who were runners-up in the USPIVA weekly competition and the knockout tournament last season.

Their approach in this season competition has made them contenders for the super-premier title currently held by Chips.

Association secretary Mereaia Belo said the next round of competition may be played at a different venue.

"The USP indoor-gym will be closed for renovations so we will have to take our games to other indoor venues, either the FMF Gymnasium or the Vodafone Arena," she said.

"We may also have to resort to playing our games on weekdays as other associations may have booked the venues for their competitions," Belo said.

Yesterday's results: Women's Major league: Bulldogs 3 Veiyanuyanu 0, Chips 3 Brycelanders 0.

Women's minor league: Ohana Divas 2 Topline I 0, Chips II 2 Topline II 0.

Men's Premier: Jammers 2 Rockets 1, Topline II 0 Hillview 2, Revival 2 Y2 1, Dolphins 0 Chips Green 2.

Men's Super-Premier: Veiyanuyanu 3 Crossroads 0, Toba Blue 3 Toba Red 2, Skyacers 0 Chips Black 3, Topline I 3 Villablazers 0.
