Veremalua in top form

Maciu Malo
Sunday, February 16, 2014

FORMER national 7s forward Jasa Veremalua scored two tries to help Hideaway Hurricanes blow apart a spirited Tabadamu outfit in the final of the Lomavata 7s at Lautoka's Churchill Park yesterday.

Veremalua combined well with former national halfback Sakiusa Makutu for the Hurricanes to beat a gutsy Tabadamu 19-12 in a nail-biting affair.

The former Natabua 7s skipper was superb during aerial contest winning quality balls for his team at the restarts and in the lineouts.

Veremalua's also showcased sheer pace when he outpaced the opposition to score his second try in the final.

His outstanding form could earn him a spot in the national 7s team after injuries to some of the national 7s team.

However, Veremalua's team was also stretched to the wire by unknown Tabadamu outfit.

Nippy Tabadamu playmaker Josateki Tuilawaki was the main man for his team.

He orchestrated some fancy moves for his team but that was not enough to win them the game.
