Tuesday, July 01, 2014

SAINT John rugby club is enjoying its rugby revival in the Serua Rugby Union club competition.

The club recently rose from the dead after two seasons of non-appearance at the SRU's weekly club games.

At the start of the season, the side which is laced with youths from Galoa and Dranikula villages made a blistering start in the competition with victories over Nakorovou and Tuvutau from Nabukelevu.

However, over the weekend, the side lost to Naculaval 3-17 at the Navutulevu Village grou; nds.

Saint John rugby official Mitieli Savu said they were pleased to revive the club.

"It's been two years now since we last competed in this competition," he said.

"We're enjoying our rugby revival and we hope to better our performance in the future games."

He said they were unfortunate to lose to Naculava last Saturday.

"It was a good game and Naculava was the better side towards the end of the game. We will look to improve our performance before the next game."

Results: U17 Latianara-Lomary; U20 St John 5 Nadruku 12; Lutua 8 Tuluga 8; St John 3 Naculava 17; Vunaniu 10 Wainiyabia 8
