HANDY Finance Naitasiri Northern Bulls started its B division campaign on a winning note yesterday.

The Manasa Radrotini-coached side demolished Rewa 33-0, scoring five unanswered tries in the process.

Spearheaded by a superb performance from fullback Vetaia Rokosuka who grabbed a brace, the Bulls looked to be the form team of the day.

Executing the basics to near perfect, Bulls head coach Radrotini said his side played according to their game plan.

"I'm happy with the result of the game," he said.

"We came here to score four tries but we scored five which means the boys played absolutely well.

"They played to near perfect, executing the basics really well."

The three tries were by open side winger Tiko Rainima, outside centre Ratu Ilaitia Rocavasiga and towering number eight Ratu Meli Sauturaga in the first 40 minutes.

Policeman Amani Bosenawai converted one to put the Bulls up, 17-0 at the break.

Waisale Dau, a former Fiji sevens squad member extended the Bulls' lead off the tee before Rokosuka touched down his brace of tries in the 64th and 67th minute. Dau had the final say of the match via a penalty.

Radrotini said Rewa played a good game.

"I thank God and the players for a good game today (yesterday). Rewa played well and tested us throughout the match.

"The boys stuck to playing simple rugby and also executed the basics well."

The Bulls will play Serua in their second match on Saturday.

In the other match yesterday Serua defeated Kadavu 21-3.
