Wailevu retains challenge title

WAILEVU Blacks thumped Domoniwai 29-17 in the second round of the Macuata Rugby Union club challenge at Labasa's Subrail Park on Saturday afternoon.

The Blacks wasted no time in front of a jam-packed stadium as they played their hearts out to defend the cup.

Domoniwai's Semisi Talebula earned his team three points after Wailevu was penalised for offside a few minutes after kick off.

The Blacks bounced back with a try but the conversion by Oscar Francis missed.

Wailevu increased their lead with two other tries to Maisiri Komo and Kaiyava Nagone.

Two yellow cards were dished out as the pressure mounted up among the players.

In the second spell, Domoniwai bounced back with two tries from Tomasi Bagaga and Veresa Ramacake.

Wailevu coach Setareki Tukania said even though some of the main players were away for the first round of the Skipper Cup competition on Viti Levu, they still managed to win.

"We still have to improve on our ball handling, defence areas and consistencies," he said.

"The boys played well and we will try to pull up our socks in the next challenge next week against Nacula."

Domoniwai coach Reverend Iliesa Tubui said the team was just developing and he was happy that the boys played their best.

"We are still in the developing stage and we are happy that the boys gave Wailevu a good match."
