Turavu stars as Natabua beats Army

Maciu Malo
Wednesday, July 23, 2014

NATABUA was crowned champion of the Lautoka rugby super premier first round competition after thumping Army 30-18 at Nadovu Park over the weekend.

The side secured 18 points for winning 10 of its 11 games in the competition.

Standout performer Jona Turavu was in top form for the young Natabua side scoring two tries to help his team defeat Army.

The former Lautoka outside centre was a thorn to the opposition breaking the first line of defence with ball in hand.

Turavu's first try showcased his strength and pace when he bulldozed past three defenders to race away untouched.

The 21-year-old combined well with fly half Samuela Vuetibau and former national under-18 halfback Eneri Ratudradra to deny the soldiers a win.

Ratudradra also scored a try for Natabua while winger Peceli Talebua had a field day with his boot giving his side a deserving victory.

Army also had their moments but it was the combination and class of Turavu and company that led to their downfall.

Lautoka Games committee chairman Suka Rabitu said the second round of competition was expected to resume this weekend.

"Natabua has been crowned the round one winner," he said.

"Duiyasana has been relegated to the premier division and it's likely they will be joined by Vio.

"Vio, Vitogo and Namoli are equal on six points ahead of Duiyasana. Namoli is yet to play two games while Vitogo has a game on hand."

Meanwhile, in another feature game Naviago outclassed Vuda Green 33-6 in the super premier competition.

Full results: FSC 17-9 Vuda Green2, Vuda Blues 2 WBD Draulu, Vakabuli WBD Teidamu, Namoli 8-3 Vitogo, Batiri 11-12 Red Hill, Naviago 33-6 Vuda Green 1, Natabua 32-18 Army
