SUVA has once again ruled the Vanua Challenge volleyball tournament in men's division.

During an all-Suva final, Bula FM edged Gold FM 3-1 to walk away as the new champions.

Defending champs Raiwai Gold lost its second match of the tournament, bowing out in the quarter-finals to Kinoya Gold.

Raiwai lost its opening game to 2Day FM Suva in the opening game on day one.

Suva volleyball official Iliesa Raketekete said Suva once proved their dominance in the men's competition.

"It's all Suva final for men," he said.

"Suva dominated the final and proved their worth against the other teams."

He said Raiwai failed to find their rhythm from day one.

"Raiwai lost to Kinoya in the quarter-final. They were not that tough like last year.

"I think that loss on day one affected their performance but all in all congratulations to Suva for once again winning the men's division."

In the semi-finals, Bula FM Suva beat 2Day FM 2-0 while Gold FM edged Kinoya 2-1.
