USP handed Combine Insurance its first defeat of the competition when it mattered the most — in the cup final of the USPTA BH Touch rugby competition.

Made of mostly students of the tertiary institute, USP downed Combine Insurance 7-4 at Albert Park in Suva on Wednesday.

Competition official Tevita Mau said the performance in the final was exactly what they had expected from the two sides.

"Leading the charge for the students was Ro Veceli Mataitini and he was supported by Saiasi Fuli, Josh Hannington, Mesake Volau, Litia Vunicagi and Aushia Kiel," Mau said.

Meanwhile, FRCA beat Merchant/FHL 4-3 in the third/fourth play-off.

"The USPTA BH Touch competition was a success and we will be holding an age group 10-16 years competition during the school break in April at USP."
