Nadro close to semi spot

THE Nadroga rugby provincial team now pushes closer to securing semi-final spots in the Skipper Cup competition.

This is after the Stallions 26-7 victory over Nadi over the weekend. The bonus-point victory over the jet setters was the nail in the coffin as the defending champions aim to finish the season on top of the table.

The Esala Nauga-coached side now leads the points table with 38 points from eight games. Naitasiri's hopes of securing a home semi-final suffered a blow following its 15-17 loss to Suva, however, they still maintain their second spot with 29 points.

Namosi's 27-12 triumph over Tailevu whereby they secured a bonus point victory in the process, elevating them to third spot, demoting Nadi to fifth place.

Namosi have 28 points while Suva sits at fourth spot with 26, Nadi follow with 25.

Northland's victory over Macuata puts Watisoni Ratulevu's side in contention for a top four finish with three more games in hand.

Tailevu has slim chances of making the semi-finals.

Vatukoula, Ovalau, Macuata, Tavua and Lautoka are miles away from making the playoffs. Tavua and Macuata will need to win their remaining matches to avoid the danger of playing the promotion relegation match.

The Skipper Cup continues this weekend.
