THE Police Headquarters team returned home champions yesterday after beating Police Northern 27-3 in the Ravonu Cup challenge at Labasa's All Saints Secondary School grounds on Friday.
The soggy ground conditions failed to dampen the spirits of the players in their bid to cross the white wash for their teams.
The visitors maintained possession throughout the match and kept the supportive fans entertained with their rugby skills.
Chief guest ACP Rusiate Tudravu reminded the players their roles as police officers on or off the field.
"Remember that people see you as officers and you should lift your performances and play like one. The way you play will reflect who you are," he said.
Police Northern coach Julian Ravuiwasa thanked the players for their performance.
"They played according to the plan and even though there were a lot of loose balls, I am happy that they gave their best shot," he said.
"The wet weather condition was among some of the contributing factors to our loss but we will try to win this cup come the challenge next year."
Police Headquarters coach Solomone Nute said his boys did not play according to their game plan.
"In the second half, we encouraged them to play according to the plan because the northern side was aggressive with their approach," he said.
"They managed to pull through until the final whistle and we thank them for their performance."
