BPFI thrashes Nadi Muslim College

Maciu Malo
Sunday, March 16, 2014

BA Provincial Freebird Institute under-19 rugby team has set a new record in the history of local rugby league with a staggering 92-2 win over Nadi Muslim College yesterday.

The side scored a total of 18 tries to cement their position as winners of the Lautoka Nadi Secondary Schools Rugby League competition.

The massive scoreline has also laid the platform for the Lautoka-based school as it prepares to battle against the giants from Tailevu and Suva in the national quarter-finals.

"I think this is the biggest scoreline recorded by any rugby league team in Fiji," said tournament organiser Ifereimi Naisoro.

"Nadi Muslim tried all the tricks in their books but the class, combination and commitment of Ba Provincial players separated them from the Nadi boys.

"It was a one-sided affair and I believe the win has laid the platform for Ba Pro during the elimination stages."

Naisoro said despite the huge scoreline Ba Pro preferred the underdog tag as it prepared to face Central Division giants such as Ratu Kadavulevu School, Lelean, and Nasinu.

He said this would be the first time for the school to play in the U19 quarter-finals and the Sugar City boys were keen to stamp their mark in this year's competition.

Ba Pro will be joined by either Natabua or Ratu Navula pending the outcome of the Ratu Navula and Nadi Muslim game on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, Ratu Navula ended Natabua's unbeaten run in the U17 grade with a 6-0 win at Ba Pro school ground yesterday.

But Natabua remains the zone champion and will be joined by Ratu Navula for the national quarter-finals.

Lautoka Central College which defeated Tilak High School 10-8, finished the competition as zone winners and will be joined by Ratu Navula during the national elimination.

Results. U15: Central 10-8 Tilak; Ratu Navula 2-0 Natabua;U17-Ratu Navula 6-0 Natabua; Ba Pro 10-0 Nadi Muslim;U19-Natabua 22-0 Tilak; Ba Pro 92-2
