Naitasiri victory

THE experienced Naitasiri side stood tall as they hammered Macuata 39-13 during their Skipper Cup competition match at Subrail Park in Labasa yesterday.

Macuata converted two penalties as it trailed 6-18 to Naitasiri's two unconverted tries from Filimone Seru and Mesake Donu while they also converted two penalties through the magic boots of Kolinio Vunaki during the end of the first half.

Macuata managed to score one converted try through Inoke Tuco while Naitasiri continued with their onslaught scoring three converted tries from fullback Maika Ligaqaqa and Kini Douglass who managed to cross over for two tries.

The Tacirua Transport-sponsored Naitasiri side will now face Tailevu at Ratu Cakobau Park next week.

The win in Labasa has secured its place on the second spot in the competition overall standings.

Naitasiri's manager Waisale Luveniyali has labelled the sides $6000 budget during the trip as worthwhile saying that they had come to Macuata with victory in their minds.

Meanwhile Macuata is still placed tenth in the overall points table and they look forward to their match against Tavua next week.

Macuata coach Sireli Vesikuru said they had to brush up on the side's defence before next week's match.
