The Kalevu Shield holder changed hands again on Saturday afternoon at Lawaqa Park after Ratu Filise wrested the silverware from Vunavutu Blues 17-15 during the Nadroga rugby club T16 challenge match.
Vunavutu won the Kalevu Shield from Tovolea on technical grounds on Wednesday evening after the game was called off when a brawl broke out in the second half.
Within days before the Outrigger on the Lagoon Nadroga side challenges for the Farebrother-Sullivan Trophy against Tebara Bus Tailevu, club games in Nadroga have intensified tremendously the past weeks.
Many games have been won by penalty kicks after teams end their games in draws despite being given a chance in sudden death play-off.
Ratu Filise and Vunavutu Blues scored two tries each but it was the boots of their kickers that made the difference.
Vunavutu, under the guidance of former national sevens rep Sakiusa Gavidi, dominated play in the first half but failed to click in the second spell as the opposition applied continuous pressure.
Vunavutu Blues coach Paula Karatu said his players didn't communicate in the second half which led to their downfall.
Ratu Filise manager Kini Boletawa said their mission before the game was not to travel the Queens Rd empty handed.
"Our mission was to win and now our target is to keep the Kalevu Shield until next year," said the former Fiji Bati rep.
The players were boosted by the presence of Fiji Bati brothers Kaliova and Alipate Tani, who took time off from camp to show support for their Namatakula Village team.
"Their presence at the grandstand was a morale booster for the players," added Boletawa.
Ratu Filise halfback Eminoni Nasilasila was voted man of the match by Nadroga rugby officials.
On Tuesday, they will defend the Kalevu Shield against Davetalevu for the second last challenge of the season.
In the Tui Vusu Trophy, Seniwi edged holder Sea Breeze 10-8 to become the new champion while the Conua Legion narrowly won over Namotu Bluez 17-16 to keep the Tui Davutukia Trophy until the next challenger on Tuesday.
