Maciu Malo
Tuesday, August 05, 2014

FORMER national under-20 rep Tevita Nabura was instrumental in Raiwaqa Knights' 24-22 win over Namatakula Cowboys during the semi-final of the FNRL Nadroga zone at Kalevu ground over the weekend.

The Knights centre was rock solid in defence and lethal on attack to help his side down a spirited Cowboys challenge.

Nabura who was used by the Knights to counter former Fiji Bati and Cowboys hard hitting centre Kini Nauvasi in the midfield played a grand game.

He also contributed 12 points from his boot to enable his side secure a spot in this weekend's final.

Knights crossed the Cowboys tryline on three occasions through former Nadroga and Suva forward Samu Kunanitu, Sakiusa Baravi.

Namatakula also scored two tries but the boot of Nabura broke their hearts.

FNRL Nadroga zone development officer Suliasi Cakautabu said the game was physical and tough.

"Both teams were evenly matched and it was anybody' game," he said.

"The game lived up to the expectation of the fans."

Meanwhile, in the second semi-final Coastal Titans defeated Outrigger Knights 24-20 to earn their spot in the final.

Baravi Eels defeated Sakiusa Gavidi's Kulukulu Rabbitohs 26-16 in the fifth and sixth play-offs.
