Sunday, June 29, 2014

SARU Dragons continues its impressive Vodafone Cup Top 8 competition run with a thumping 40-0 win over Topline Warriors at Tavua's Garvey Park yesterday.

The win has secured the Dragons' standing on the top of the points table after the completion of first round of competition.

Former Fiji Bati forward Tikiko Noke, flyer Esira Dokoni and Aminisasi Yaroi scored two tries each in a one-sided affair.

Another Fiji Bati forward Semisi Tora also registered his name on the score sheet alongside Ilaitia Rogorogoivalu while the rest of the points were from the boot of fly half Jo Vetaukula.

Team coach Tevita Volavola commended his troops for their grand performance.

He said his troops had performed exceptionally well preventing their opposition to cross their try line.

"This is one of our best ever performance this season and I thank the boys for their effort," said Volavola.

"The experience and combination of Tikiko, Tora, Vetaukula and other senior players have enabled us to achieve this huge win.

"We have also improved on our defensive system enabling us to successfully defend our try line."

Volavola said the win has set their platform for our next game against the defending champion Sabeto Roosters in the second round of competition.

He said there were still room for improvements and urged his boys to maintain the consistency.

"The second round is expected to be tough."

"We need to maintain our consistency knowing many teams will want to beat us.

"The first test for the boys is the game against Sabeto next weekend but I am hopeful the side will deliver the goods expected of them," he added.
