Monday, June 16, 2014

ISLANDS Electric Lautoka Crushers hammered Lautoka Rabbitohs 48-0 to maintain their winning record in the Fiji National Rugby League premier competition at Lautoka's Churchill Park on Saturday.

Flyer Kelepi Tabaka and forward Kitione Ligavatu scored two tries each contributing to Crushers' 8-try romp.

Fiji secondary rugby league rep Asaeli Sorovaki was the battering ram for the young Crushers side proving his team mates the opportunities to break their opposition's defensive line.

Central College student Uraia Naulasavu also registered his name on the scoresheet. Semi Tuicoco, Marika Sigawale and Jone Ravu also scored a try each while skipper Semiti Tukana added the extras from the conversions.

Team manager Mesake Navugona said the side also introduced four new players during the game.

He said the new boys responded well to the new playing environment.

"The introduction of four young players is part of the club's development and exposure routine," Navugona said after the game.

"Our objective is to expose young players in the premier games to improve their game.

"We are happy with the outcome of the game most importantly to maintain our winning form.

"The win has bolstered the morale of the boys for their upcoming games."

Navugona said the side had also set its target to secure a spot in the Top 8 competition.

He also thanked Islands Electric for financially supporting the team over the past 11 years.

Meanwhile, in another exciting feature yesterday, Saru Dragon defetaed Nabua Broncos 34-14.
