THE First Touch team from Suva dazzled at the Nadi Touch Rugby Association competition in Namaka yesterday.

First Touch showed a lot of class to win its matches in the mixed division. First Touch defeated Taki Mai 9-4 and edged the Namaka Mozzies 5-4.

Association president Trevor Cleary said they hoped to get more clubs from Suva to play in their competition.

Cleary said First Touch had a lot of experience.

"We had the First Touch team make their way down from Suva and they proved to be good," he said.

"They have been reaching the semi-finals and finals of many tournaments.

"We are hoping to get more teams from Suva down just to judge the level of our competition.

"For the past few years the focus on the sport has been in Suva.

"We formed the Nadi body to expand the sport.

"Our competition is a bit different from Suva as we are playing round robin matches so the players can get game time and gain experience."

In other mixed category games Turbos thrashed Nacava Spartans 9-1 and Waqadra Babas defeated PTZ 7-3.
