First win for Vatukoula

VATUKOULA recorded its first Skipper Cup competition win this season against Macuata at Theodore Park yesterday.

The gold miners, coached by Senirusi Seruvakula, edged Macuata 12-10.

It was a game of each half, as the home team scored all its points in the opening half while the visitors bounced back in the second spell to narrow the deficit.

Winger Josaia Qumi scored Vatukoula's opening try and a penalty try was enough to secure a 12-0 lead at the break.

Macuata showed a much determined attitude in the second half and was close to pulling off a victory.

Vatukoula Rugby Union chairman Lemeki Rasiga said it was a tough game for his boys. He said Vatukoula lacked the concentration in the second half.

"We're happy with the win but there are a lot of areas that we need to improve on before the next game," he said.

"Macuata gave us a good game. They dictated the game for our boys in the second half and we failed to stick to our game plan."
