NABUA upset the Suva Stallions to win the Fulton Hogan Cup in the Suva Rugby Union club competition yesterday.

Laced with young and new reps, Nabua beat the SSFL Stallions 18-13 at Albert Park in the Koroturaga competition.

The Stallion with the services of provincial rep Alipate Matevelia, failed to defend the title they had won from the USP Islanders last weekend.

Competition official Mitieli Waqa said the Nabua side showed a lot of guts to dethrone the Stallions.

And in the Ambassadors competition, Leeds Kalokolevu successfully retained the RC Manubhai Cup with a 25-12 win over the Grammar Old Boys.

"This was the first title defence for Leeds Kalokolevu and they played really well to keep the title for another week," Waqa said.

He said the standard of competition between the teams had increased and players were now settling well.

"Competition was really tough today (yesterday) with all the teams giving it their best shot on the field.

"We saw some upsets when Nabua lost 14-25 to Red Rock who just got promoted to the premier competition this season and then Nabua beat the Stallions to become the new holders of the Fulton Hogan Cup.

"And Marist got their second successive win when they beat Covenant Brothers 10-8 in a close match. Marist had beaten NFA last weekend."

Fiji Bitter Premier results: Navy 34 Newtown 17, Army Green 38 Savura 5, Red Rock 25 Nabua 14, Harlequins 23 Police Blues 35, Covenant 8 Marist 10, Raiwaqa 15 Tacirua 17, NFA 22 Lomai Green 10.
