Natabua keeps winning run

Maciu Malo
Monday, June 23, 2014

NATABUA maintained its unbeaten run in the Lautoka rugby super premier competition defeating Vuda Green 10-5 at Churchill Park on Saturday.

Speed merchant Kelepi Tabaka scored two tries enabling his side to secure its nine consecutive wins in the competition.

Former Fiji Bati Tikiko Noke and former Lautoka rugby centre Jona Turavu formed a lethal centre combination in the Natabua backline as they bombarded the opposition with big hits and breaking runs.

The combination of halfback Babalu Tuivonovono and fly half Samu Vuetibau was also handful for the opposition.

Vuda also had their moments but the poor decision making and unforced errors contributed to their downfall early in the game.

But the green machine never gave up the fight matching Natabua head-on to score a consolation try at the stroke of fulltime.

In another exciting club game Tropic defeated Rangers 14-10.
