RAIWAQA Red and White made it two from two when they overcame their respective opponents in the USP Touch Association weekly competition.

Week one competition ended on Thursday with Red defeating Metra 8-4 and White pipping Sixers 4-3.

Competition official Tevita Mau said both the Raiwaqa sides had nine points each and Red leads pool one while White leads pool two.

"Early pace is set by Raiwaqa Red in pool one and Raiwaqa White in Pool two," he said.

"Raiwaqa Red comprises the next generation of touch players to be churned out of this sport-loving neighbourhood and they are guided by Inoke Veresa.

"Already there are special talent identified who could be donning the national jumpers in the sport of touch in years to come."

Mau said other teams were learning and might pick up on their game in the later stages of the competition.

"Sixers from Raiwai will be a force in the competition after running the champion Raiwaqa White side in a closely contested match-up before losing 3-4."

Mau thanked USP fitness centre manager Mark Fung and Gabriel Qoro for their support in the establishment of the USPTA program.

Competition resumes on Tuesday at the USP grounds.
