BOMBERS and Flyers White mixed teams look set to qualify for the playoffs in the Suva Touch Rugby competition later this month.

Both teams are undefeated after seven rounds of competition and are the form teams of the competition.

In yesterday's games, Flyers White beat Flyers Redz while Bombers defeated Roosters 4-1. Laced with national reps such as Clayborne, Taito Cadra, Ben Tuisinu and Onisimo, Bombers executed the basics well to humble the Roosters.

Association president Charles Cleary said the competition got better and tougher as it progresses.

"Bombers played good touch rugby today (yesterday)," he said.

"They got a young but very energetic side who executed the basics very well which led to the results against the Roosters.

"It was an even affair, but Bombers have a lot of depth in their squad and they walked away as the top team of the day."

He said Flyers White looked in good form.

"The all Flyers match between Flyers White and Flyers Redz was exciting as well. I think Flyers White is in a good position to qualify for the playoffs."

In the men's category Flyers White and Bombers have also stamped their marks. In the under-20 competition, Davui will be hoping to keep their form run in the remaining two rounds before the playoffs.
