Maciu Malo
Tuesday, July 15, 2014

SARU Dragons started the second round of the FNRL Vodafone Cup competition with a bang defeating reigning champions Sabeto Roosters 14-8 at Vatureba Park in Navosa over the weekend.

The Dragons maintained its impressive record from round one to stamp their dominance in the competition.

The side lost only one game in the first round to top the point's table standings.

Team official Lagilagi Golea commended the Dragons for their effort in surviving a tough battle against the defending champion.

He said the win had set the platform for the side in their quest to qualify for the elimination stages.

"The boys continued from where they left off in the first round beating the Roosters," said Golea.

"The side has failed to win the title after having played in three grand finals.

"So the aim for this year is to win the title.

"But again more hard work is needed from the boys in the remaining games."

Sabeto coach Vela Tawake said the loss was a wake-up call for his troops.

"We gave our best but it was not enough to win us the game," he said.

"We need to lift our performance in the remaining games in order to defend our title.

"The loss is also a wake- up call for the boys," he added.

The Roosters will face Burenitu Cowboys this weekend.
