A VICTORIOUS Police Headquarters team returns to Suva today with the Commissioner's Cup after beating Police Northern 34-21 at Subrail Park in Labasa yesterday.
The Viti Levu side wasted no time in the first half as Neori Vuidreketi scored their first try followed by two penalties to Mikaele Ratuvou.
The Northerners bounced back with two penalties to trail 6-13.
Keponi Paul ran through the tough Northern defence to score a try which was also converted. The Northerners retaliated with a try to Nemani Biu before halftime.
In the second spell, Police Northern's Rupeni George scored another try which was converted by Ilikena Tukana.
A few yellow cards were dished out to both teams as the match heated up.
Neori Vuidreketi and Saula Tawake scored a try each to seal the game for Headquarters.
Headquarters coach Inspector Solomone Niute said although the boys won the match, they did not play to their expectations.
"The performance was not really good but we're happy with the win," he said.
"We thank the Northerners for the good game."
Police Northern official corporal Peni Bolalailai said even though they did not win, the boys played a good game.
