NAMOSI leads the Skipper Cup points table after the opening round of the competition.

The side managed a bonus point win after thumping Macuata 41-3 at Thomson Park in Navua yesterday.

Namosi led 31-0 at the break.

Team manager Apimeleki Taukei said a strong first half display handed the team the big win.

He said the win had set a good platform for the side in its remaining matches in the competition.

"It's a good start even though we haven't reached our full potential yet in the training," Taukei said.

"But a win is a win and we are pleased with the bonus point victory."

Taukei said the team's aim was to maintain the top spot in the Skipper Cup competition.

Last year after gaining promotion in the top tier provincial competition, Namosi managed to finish in top four.

"We would like to inform our supporters that Namosi will try its best to finish on top at the end of the competition.

"We have got some big games coming up against teams like Naitasiri and Nadroga and we will try to up our training to perform better against them.

"The crowd was really good considering it's a vanua-based team so we always have a good support."

In the other matches played yesterday defending champions Nadroga defeated Vatukoula 33-25 while Ovalau overcame Tavua 11-9.
