THE Suva Kaji under-14 side outplayed its opponent in Australia to mark a successful 2013 development tour.

The Willie Daurewa-coached side defeated South Sydney Divisional team 78-5 in New South Wales, Australia on Saturday.

Suva Kaji, sponsored by Williams and Gosling, ran in 11 tries to one.

"The match was played in chilly conditions but this failed to dampen the side," coach Daurewa said.

"Openside flanker Jordan Dokonivalu put on a super performance that won him the Player of the Match award.

"The Veiuto Primary School student dedicated the award to his late mother who had passed away late last month."

Daurewa said the match also marked the beginning of a new competition that would be contested annually.

The competition will be the tussle for the Volavola Cup which Waratahs player Ben Volavola presented to Suva Kaji skipper Osea Natoga after the match.

Volavola is a former student of Veiuto Primary School.
