CAN BLK Nadroga be beaten?

This is the million dollar question for either Naitasiri or Nadi to answer in the upcoming Skipper Tuna final.

The Stallions rose to the occasion and delivered the goods for their fans hammering Suva 40-22 in the Skipper Tuna semi-final held at Lawaqa Park yesterday.

The formidable Nadroga outfit mesmerised the opposition with free flowing game and running rugby to score six brilliant tries to Suva's three.

The defending champion ran riot to secure its 31st consecutive win in two years and is on course to defend the title for another season.

Captain, courageous Rupeni Nasiga, superbly led his troops against a heavy and experienced Suva pack to continue its dominance in the local provincial competition. Super sub Mitieli Nacagilevu featured strongly scoring a try and had a hand in Aporosa Tabulawaki's try to help his team win.

Nadroga's other tries were scored by skipper Nasiga, Samuela Cava, Eroni Vasiteri and Samu Laqai while Suva was awarded a penalty try.

Former national 7s rep Jolame Bera and Necani Wakaya also crossed the tryline for Suva.

Nasiga thanked his troops for their effort.

"Firstly I thank the Lord for giving us the power and the strength to beat Suva," said Nasiga.

"I thank the players for their contribution and also the fans for their support throughout the competition."

Nadroga will meet the winner of the Nadi and Naitasiri second semi-final in its quest to defend the title.
