Victory sees Nailaga continues unbeaten run in Ba

Maciu Malo
Sunday, April 20, 2014

NAILAGA continues its unbeaten run in the Ba rugby club competition with a narrow 15-13 win over Ba River Reds at Ba's market ground yesterday.

The side shrugged off a powerful surge from the Votua-based Ba River side to maintain their winning streak after four rounds of competition.

Nailaga now joins Sorokoba and Ba River Blues as unbeaten sides in the competition.

Sorokoba thumped Balevuto 12-6 while Ba River Blues defeated Sasa 21-13 in other matches played yesterday.

Natalecake playing with 13-men in the last 15 minutes for indiscipline survived the battle to beat Nasolo 13-10.

With five rounds remaining, the battle is between Sorokoba, Ba River Blues and Nailaga to win the first round robin games.

Team official Salesitino Gukirewa said the club games had progressed well but the main concern was indiscipline.

In the game between Natalecake and Nasolo five yellow cards were flashed by the referee.

Gukirewa said discipline had been addressed to the players and team officials each every week.

He said another area of concern was the players' understanding about the new rules.

"Some of the players are finding it difficult to understand the new rugby rules and the referees are doing their best in educating the players on the new changes," said Gukirewa.

"We are hopeful that the players will learn from their mistakes and play clean and competitve rugby in the remainig games."

The competition resumes next week.
