RAIWAQA Bulldogs continued its fairytale run to win it's first AFL Fiji Cup at Albert Park in Suva yesterday.

The Maciu Raida-skippered side defeated favourites Nausori Cats 23-13 in the showdown.

The Bulldogs, which is a relatively new side in the competition, became the underdogs for the title after beating Suva City Swans in the semi-final.

AFL Fiji national coach and board member Myke Leahy said the discipline from the Raiwaqa team won them the title.

"The Bulldogs once again were very well structured, they had a strong leadership and played a disciplined game," Leahy said.

"They played a tough, hard and physical game and kept the composure to deny the Cats from playing their normal game."
