Natabua reigns

Maciu Malo
Sunday, January 26, 2014

NATABUA thumped Sorokoba 24-0 to win the Gaunavou 7s tournament held at the Ba Market ground yesterday.

Playmaker Sunia Talebula and tough forward Jona Turavu were the stars for the Lautoka-based team scoring a try each in the final.

Talebula's skills and class was a thorn to the opposition and he look set to follow the footsteps of his brother and France-based Metuisela Talebula.

He provided the spark in the backline and linked well with his forwards to help his team dominate the show.

While Talebula was doing the damage in the backs, hard hitting Lautoka outside centre Turavu was the demolition man in the forwards.

Turavu displayed sheer pace and power to lay the platform for his team mates to capitalise .

Tournament official Joji Tuivaga said Talebula and Turavu are potential candidates to become national reps.

He said the duo were instrumental for Natabua during the tournament.

"We are grateful that we have achieved our goal in identifying some hidden talents in the West," said Tuivaga.

"Turavu and Talebula are two players that have the quality and the class to become star players in the future.

"They just need good coaching to be able to meet the standard required in the national 7s team."
