Nawaka 7s: Dragons secure quarter-final spot

By MACIU MALO
Saturday, April 12, 2014

Update: 1:06PM DEFENDING champions Westfield Dragons counted their lucky stars after being saved by the tournament rules to advance to the main quarter-finals of the Fiji Bitter Nawaka 7s at Prince Charles Park this morning.

The tournament rules state in the elimination stages where the scores are levelled at the stroke of full time, the team that scores the first try will advance to the quarter-finals.

Pio Tuwai's Westfield Dragons was stretched to the wire by a gutsy Ilai Tinai's Warden Green in the first elimination.

The star-studded Dragons which boasted national reps Samu Saqiwa, Vatemo Ravouvou and Nadroga utility backline Simeli Koniferedi were given a good run for their money after the two teams drew 14-all at full time.

The Dragons were fortunate to advance to the main quarter-finals for scoring the first try.
