Sorokoba retains Ba rugby title

Maciu Malo
Monday, June 30, 2014

KBL Sorokoba successfully defended the Elisha Engineering challenge shield after its 28-0 win over Yalalevu Babas in the Ba rugby club game held at the Ba Market ground on Saturday.

Tireless flanker Filimoni Naliva was in top form scoring two tries to help his team retain the title.

Winger Ilaitia Vakabua scored Sorokoba's third try while the rest of the points came from lock forward Apisai Toga's boot.

Elated with the victory, skipper Tuifagalele Naliva said rock-solid defence of his players won them the game.

He said his troops played their hearts out and comradely work together to fulfil their goal.

"Firstly I thank the Almighty Lord for his guidance and leadership enabling us to defend the title," said Naliva.

"I also thank our coach Mikaele Driu and trainer Sanaila Vunisa for their advise and hard work.

"Despite the win there are still areas of improvement exposed during the game — something we need to work on before the next game."

The side will defend the title against Nasolo on Saturday.
