RAIWAQA Whites were crowned champions of the inaugural USP Touch Rugby league competition on Tuesday.

They beat hosts USP 8-5 at the USP grounds in Laucala Bay.

Competition official Tevita Mau said Whites' match experience proved to be their strength in the match.

"It was another scintillating performance in the final," he said.

"Raiwaqa Whites got off to a good start and scored first. USP responded immediately before Colati touched down again for the Whites. USP replied with another touchdown to level the scores before Raiwaqa got the ascendancy to score three unanswered touchdowns and going to the breather leading 5-2."

Mau said USP tried to close the gap in the second half but the damage was already done.

"Outstanding for the Raiwaqa Whites were national reps and brothers Samu and Semisi Rareba.

"National men's captain Rusiate Uluimoala played a captain's knock for USP in rallying the troops and they will definitely take the loss as a learning experience."
