Top teams clash in Rakiraki rugby challenge cup

Maciu Malo
Saturday, July 26, 2014

A MOUTH-WATERING battle is expected in the Rakiraki Cup challenge between holders Service Gold and challenger Navatu Reds at the Ra Sports ground this afternoon.

The game will be a battle between the top two teams in the competition in their quest to decide the best team in the Rakiraki zone.

Service which has been outstanding throughout the season will face a titanic battle from points leaders Navatu Reds.

The game is expected to be exciting as players are aiming to secure a spot in the Ra training squad for the B-division championship.

Ra rugby manager Vilimone Dranivesi said the Service team would be tested by a tough Navatu outfit in its third defence campaign.

"The team has defended the trophy twice against Vatucere Black and Malake respectively and it will be interesting to see whether they can defend the title against Navatu."

At the Saivou sub-union, Mataso and Nalaba have stamped their dominance in the competition.

Mataso is the holder of the Taukei Natauwiya trophy while Nalaba tops the points' table standings.

Meanwhile, the Ra team is looking forward to the game against Nadroga this afternoon.
