BOMBERS will feature in the semi-finals of both the men's and the mixed grades in the Suva Touch Association competition.

In the men's quarter-final, Bombers defeated Laucala Knights 4-1 at Furnival Park in Toorak while in the mixed quarter-final; Bombers thrashed Flyers Red 10-2.

Association president Charles Cleary said Bombers would face Roosters in the semi-finals of both grades.

The Roosters also triumphed in their respective quarter-finals in both grades yesterday.

In the men's competition, they beat JNG Stallions 8-5 and in the mixed quarter-final, they won 5-4 over First Touch.

Cleary said Flyers from Raiwaqa, which used to be a powerhouse in the domestic touch rugby competition, would also feature in the both semi-finals.

He said the lone team which surprised everyone at the quarter-finals yesterday was Davui.

"Davui's 3-2 victory over First Touch in the men's quarter-finals was the upset of the day," Cleary said.

Results: Men's: Flyers White 5 Super Touch 2, First Touch 2 Davui 3, Roosters 8 JNG Stallions 5, Bombers 4 Laucala Knights 1

Mixed: Roosters 5 First Touch 4, Flyers White 6 JNG Stallions 4, Bombers 10 Flyers Red 2, Davui 3 Super Touch 4
