Tough clashes in touch first round

BOMBERS drew 7-all with Super Touch in the feature match of the Suva Touch Association weekly competition on Saturday.

It was the first round of games and association president Charles Cleary said all teams brought their A game to Furnival Park in Toorak.

"The main game was in the mixed category. It was so tight, basically tit for tat," he said.

"Bombers would score and then Super Touch would score and it just went like that until the final whistle."

Clearly said the match could have gone either way given the experience of the players the two sides had.

"The Bombers had more boys in their side with experience at national level but they couldn't capitalise on that.

"Super Touch is a team made up of current and former tertiary students with more girls who have had experience at national level."

Cleary said the weather allowed for free-flowing competition.

"The weather was great. It was cloudy and so it was quite cool and only a little shower of rain, so the ground was not hard and we had some good quality touch rugby.

"We hope it is the same next weekend so we can have another beautiful day and beautiful competition."
