Nakosi scores a hat-trick

FORMER Tokatoka Westfield Babas winger Filipo Nakosi scored a hat-trick of tries for the Blues Development XV to thrash the Samoa under-20 side 45-21 last week.

Nakosi, a relative of Fiji sevens rep Pio Tuwai, was in super form against the Baby Samoans who are preparing for the Junior World Championship which starts today in New Zealand.

Nakosi, who is contracted with Northland, showed his range of skills touching down three of the Blues seven tries, while number eight Ari Hunt was a dominant force throughout the match, and ably supported by his fellow forwards.

Samoa had the early territorial advantage, but with the Blues disrupting their ball and line-out and scrum, it struggled to capitalise.

When the Blues finally got some forward ball, they made easy metres down the left flank and it was only some desperate cover defence that stopped a try.

Using their scrum dominance to full advantage, the Blues opted to pack down after a penalty five metres from the line and flanker Zac Judge powered over for the first points of the game.

The Blues Development team will have the final match of their campaign on June 18 against Cook Islands.
