Wailevu confident of retaining title

THE Wailevu Rugby team is adamant it will retain the title they won in last year's Macuata Rugby club competition.

In the first round of cup challenge in Labasa on Saturday, Wailevu defeated Malau FFI team by 22-6.

Wailevu coach Setareki Tukania said the commitment and dedication from his boys resulted in a good game.

"It's a good start for the season and we will maintain this standard and the high expectations our boys have for this season," he said.

"It's about continuity and consistency which is why the boys need to maintain fitness and speed.

"This first game was outstanding and the boys from Malau also gave us a hard game. But the determination of my boys helped them seal the game with a win."

Tukania said the support from the villagers also contributed to the superb performance.

For the new team — Malau FFI — coach Waisea Mata described the game as a tough one.

"The Wailevu team has played together longer than our boys who just joined the competition this year," he said.

"Just give us a few more games and Macuata will see some unknown talents from the boys of Malau.

"The game also gave my team good exposure and they now know what to expect from a challenge."

Wailevu scored three unconverted tries with one converted while Malau managed two penalty kicks.
