Rokosamu stars in Cowboys win

Maciu Malo
Sunday, June 29, 2014

BURENITU Cowboys stunned the Makoi Bulldogs outfit 21-8 in the FNRL Vodafone Cup competition at Garvey Park in Tavua yesterday.

Winger Waisea Rokosamu was the toast of his Ra-based side scoring two tries to end their round one game on a high note.

Rokosamu's pace and strength was a handful for the opposition stamping his mark in his first super premier game.

The flyer combined well with former national 7s rep Neumi Nanuku to upset one of the rugby league giants.

"The boys played according to the game plan and I commend them for their effort," said team manager Pauliasi Vakayalia.

"Beating one of the top teams like the Bulldogs is a huge boost to the boys.

"We had also unearthed our new star in winger Rokosamu."

The Cowboys have finally found their winning rhythm after their loss to Saru Dragons last week.

"We have improved a lot from last week and hopefully the side will maintain consistency in all our remaining games."

"We still need to build on our combination and expose few more new boys to this level of competition."

Meanwhile, in other Top 8 games yesterday, Sabeto Roosters defeated Nadera Panthers 22-18, Nabua Broncos survived a torrid encounter to beat Police Sharks 13-12 while Saru Dragons hammered Topline Warriors 40-0.

The second round of completion will be held next weekend.
