WARDENS South retained the Navosa Rugby Union Matanitobua Tanoa Challenge at Thomson Park in Navua yesterday.

The side defeated challengers Nabukavesi 14-3 in the feature match in round three of the competition.

Both teams were evenly matched going into the game but the experience of Wardens South proved too much for the challengers.

Wardens South and Nabukavesi were locked at nil-all at the break.

Wardens South sent in its impact players in the second spell to ignite the team's attack and succeeded with a try to lead 7-0.

Nabukavesi came close to scoring a try but made some poor decisions.

However the side managed to get a three-pointer to trail 3-7 midway the second half.

Tireless Wardens forwards drove through for another try to seal the 14-3 win.

The Tanoa holders had the services of Namosi provincial reps in Risiate Tadulala, Vili Satala and Iliesa Salusalu while Nabukavesi comprised Namosi development team players and some senior reps.

Namosi Rugby Union secretary Navitalai Naivalurua said Wardens East would challenge Wardens South for the prestigious Tanoa next weekend.

"Wardens East comprised players from the Suva area while Wardens South had players from Naboro."
