Good start for Police Blues

Salaseini Moceiwai
Tuesday, March 11, 2014

THE Police Blues started off on a high note in the first round of the Macuata Rugby Union club games by beating Malau FFI 9-6 at Labasa's Subrail Park on Saturday.

The soggy ground failed to dampen spirits as both sides battled to score points.

Malau FFI's Pena Vakaruru successfully kicked two penalties and took his team to a 6-0 lead in the first few minutes of the first half.

Police Blues bounced back with a successful penalty by Mosese Tuidraki taking the points to 6-3 before halftime.

In the second spell, a drop goal and another successful penalty ensured the Police Blues remained in control until the final whistle.

Police coach Jullian Ravuiwasa said the match was to prepare the boys for the first round of the Vodafone Cup Competition against Ovalau next month.

He expressed hope that some of the boys would be selected to wear the Macuata jersey to play against Ovalau.

Malau FFI coach Waisale Mata said the match was all part of efforts to lift rugby in Macuata.

He said the team was happy with their performance even though they lost.
