TEVITA Taga starred for Saunaka in their 3-0 victory against a determined Dratabu White team in the Nadi Rugby Union club competition at Prince Charles Park yesterday.

Tevita, son of former dual international Savenaca Taga was on target in the 61st minute steering his dropgoal between the uprights to give Saunaka victory by the slightest of margins.

Savenaca represented Fiji in both soccer and rugby league.

Nadi Rugby Union media officer Rusiate Ratakele said the teams were scoreless at halftime.

He said newly promoted Dratabu White put up a strong challenge.

"Dratabu White won the Foodhall trophy last year and was promoted to the Senior A this season," he said.

"It was an entertaining game though no tries were scored. The defence of both teams was solid."

Veteran Joeli Lotawa played for Saunaka. It was the perfect start for the Saunaka Rugby Club which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year.

Ratakele said a few defaults were recorded.

He said competition would continue next week.

Nacava defeated Korotabu by default, Dratabu Development 21 Gaunavou Development 9, Natalau 8 Dratabu Green 7, St. Mary 11 Vaturu Gold 10, Sabeto Development defeated Navoci Development by default, Nawaka 26 Saunivalu 26, Vaturu Green 10 Abba 13, Nawaka Development 10 Saunaka Development 13, Yavusania 17 Tovolea 18, Saioni defeated Dratabu Green by default, Vunamaoli 19 Veiyasana 20, Police 23 Airport 7, Marine 10 Aviation Fire 12, Nabau 8 Korobebe 12.
