NADROGA fullback Apisalome Waqatabu helped the Western Division successfully reclaim the Commissioner's Cup with a 21-10 victory over the Police Special Response Unit (PSRU) yesterday.

Waqatabua scored a try, kicked a conversion, two penalties and a drop goal for a massive haul of 16 points at the Nasova ground yesterday.

Ratu Meli Kurisaru scored the other try for the side.

Western Division held the title for the majority of last season and this time, known as the Hyper Chem Western Force, they once again took the coveted title back to the West.

Team manager Vuetasau Tumeicavai said the side was made up of officers from Sigatoka to Ra.

"After losing the title last year, we decided to win it back in the very next chance we got," he said.

"And that is what the boys did here today (yesterday)."

Other prominent players who featured for the Western Division were Setefano Somoca, Peni Ravai, Ulaiasi Lawavou, Mosese Volavola, Seremaia Naureure, Etonia Naba, Isoa Donaldson, Jock Luita and Mitieli Nacagilevu.
