Dragons down Broncos

SARU Dragons extended its winning streak over the Nabua Broncos to 12 games after their 20-12 win at the Suva Grammar School grounds yesterday.

Jona Bainivalu scored a brace of tries while Aminiasi Aroi and Peniasi Vatu scored one each and Solomoni Qeti kicked a conversion for the KBL-sponsored side. Samisoni Naivatu kicked a penalty for the visitors.

The Dragons have not lost a match since their first round loss when competition started and maintained their spot on the top of the points table.

Coach Tevita Volavola said remaining on top of the points table was their aim so that they could host a home semi-final.

He said their game-plan was to shut the Nabua runners and to disrupt their playing structure.

"Nabua has some very good runners and we had to stop them from crossing the advantage line and we had to disrupt their game-plan," Volavola said.

"We didn't defend well in the first half but we did well in the second half and our players did a good job against Nabua."

Nabua coach Aporosa Vosataki said his side made a lot of costly errors in the match.

"We made a lot of errors and didn't complete our set of six tackles," he said.

"We did more defending than attacking and since we did less attacking we didn't score the points that we needed."

The Pack Leader-sponsored Nabua side plays Dee Cees Nadera Panthers next weekend while the Dragons host Burenitu Cowboys in Lautoka.
