Nadro still on top

FOR the second week in a row, defending champion Nadroga has kept opponents at bay, not crossing the tryline and securing bonus point victories.

Last week, it was Suva that could not penetrate the Stallions defence and on Friday night, Tailevu was again a victim of Nadroga's solid wall of defence in the Skipper Cup competition.

At Sigatoka's Lawaqa Park, Nadroga thumped Suva 31-6. The Esala Nauga-coached Nadroga side humbled Tailevu 24-6 at Ratu Cakobau Park in Nausori.

Despite playing in front of its home fans, the green machine could not find its rhythm that was spoiled by the ruggered and mobile Nadroga loose forwards of Eremasi Radrodro, Apisai Moimoi and Flying Fijian Nemani Nagusa.

The front row of Setefano Samoca, Iliesa Leca and Peni Ravai were all over the park. Skipper Manoa Tamaya led the pack well with his locking partner Epeli Natuikata.

Tailevu had itself to blame for some occasional casual play.

Fullback Emori Waqa showed a lot of confidence under the high ball despite being tested by Nadroga on several occasions.

Nadroga led 12-0 at the break.
