Tuwai, Nacuqu fail to spark as Ba River loses trophy

A NEW winner was crowned during the Ba Rugby Union club competition over the weekend.

KBL Sorokoba upset defending champions Ba River Votua to win the Elisha Shield challenge 18-14 at the Ba Market grounds last Saturday.

Ba River had the services of national 7s rep Pio Tuwai and Waisea Nacuqu and New Zealand-based Filipo Nakosi.

The trio failed to deliver as the challengers proved they were worthy customers of challenging the title.

A fortnight ago, Tuwai converted five tries to help Ba River Votua beat Nailaga 35-12 where he combined well with Nacuqu for the crucial victory.

However, last week, it was a bitter scenario for Tuwai and company.

Tournament official Salesitino Gukirewa said the match lived up to its expectation as the crowd watched in "awe" the skills and standard of the game.

He said Sorokoba was a tough customer as predicted earlier last week.

"It was a very tough game," he said.

"Sorokoba played really well and they showed they were prepared to give Ba River a good game. It was not an easy defence for Ba River."
