14-man Suva wins

Luke Rawalai
Sunday, May 25, 2014

IT was a nail-biting clash between Suva and Macuata at Subrail Park yesterday and it looked like it was anybody's game towards fulltime in this Skipper Cup encounter.

Suva had established its lead in the first half with penalties to Serupepeli Vulanilau and Simeli Naoba to lead 6-0.

Unfortunately Suva captain Jolame Bera was sent off before Ilitomasi Nawalu scored their first try to increase their lead to 11-0.

Macuata managed three points through a converted penalty to Meli Vula bringing points to 11-3 at the end of the first half.

Suva started the second half with a bang as Vesi Rarawa scored a converted try after the first few minutes to bring their scores to 18-3.

Macuata responded with an unconverted try to Bueta Brown and another converted by Jerry Koroilagilagi bringing the scoreline in favour of Suva to 18-15.

The visitors however managed to clear any doubt as John Stewart powered home to score another try which was converted by Vulanilau to give them the 25-15 win over Macuata.

Suva's assistant coach Tiko Vakatale said that Suva's performance this week was better than the last week.

Vakatale said the teams performance was marred as they had only 14 players on the field just after five minutes from the start of the first half.
