THE three Raiwaqa teams in the USP Touch Association made an explosive start in the first two days of the competition.

On Tuesday, Raiwaqa Red beat Broncos II 4-3 and Raiwaqa White thrashed Broncos I 7-2.

Raiwaqa Blue overcame Metra 7-4 on Wednesday and Sixers beat USP 3-1.

Competition official Tevita Mau said Raiwaqa was now a dominant force in the sport while Broncos used to be the champions of yesteryears.

"Raiwaqa Flyers, under the guidance of Inoke Veresa and the Uluimoala brothers, set the early tone of the game and pressed on Tuesday.

"National reps like Lemeki Sevutia and Samu Rareba were stalwarts in holding together this fine Raiwaqa machine.

"Broncos showed glimpses of their prowess that once ruled the touch territory and will become deadly as the competition rolls on."

Mau said the association was currently in the process of a three-year strategic plan.

"This plan basically outlines the direction that USPTA will be embarking on in line with the Fiji Touch Association plans.

"The theme of the strategic plan is tiered towards development, competition and building capacity.

"In 2015, the Touch World Cup will be in Australia and the Pacific Games in PNG."
