Suva edges Tailevu in Skipper Cup clash

SUVA returned to winning ways after its disappointing loss to Tavua in the Skipper Cup competition last weekend to beat Tailevu 15-13 in a close tussle at the ANZ Stadium on Friday night.

Both teams displayed a rusty performance in the opening half riddled with basic errors and were unable to cross the tryline.

Suva's Serupepeli Vularika slotted in three penalties to one from Tailevu's from Emori Waqa to lead 9-3 at the break.

The Inoke Male-coached Tailevu changed its approach in the second spell and came fighting to cushion the deficit.

Their relentless effort paid off when winger Samuela Bainivalu scored the opening try of the match to trail 9-8 before Vularika slotted in two more penalties to extend Suva's lead to 15-8.

Bainivalu scored his second try in the last quarter of the match as Waqa failed to convert handing Suva the slender 15-13 win.
