SERUA got the better of their tauvu from Kadavu in their B Division match 21-3 at Ratu Cakobau Park in Nausori on Tuesday.

While Kadavu played a physical game to frustrate their tauvu at crucial times of the match, Serua maintained their composure to seal the game scoring a try in each half.

Compared to previous years, a new-look Serua side played a disciplined game while Kadavu had three players sin-binned and one was sent off.

Serua started strongly with a penalty to fly-half Tevita Saisai to lead 3-0 in the 9th minute. Blindside winger Peceli Veravu scored Serua's first try to extend the lead 8-0.

Kadavu fly-half Savenaca Masi closed the margin by converting a penalty to trail 3-8.

Saisai had four golden opportunities to extend their lead but managed to convert only a penalty as Serua led 11-3 at halftime.

In the opening minute of the second spell, Saisai nailed another three-pointer as Serua further led 14-3.

Kadavu showed few glimpses of making a comeback and playing in the opposition's territory but the Serua defence held.

Replacement Penisoni Naimata scored the last try which was converted by Saisai.

Serua coach Paula Nasara said they were satisfied with the win.

"We need to work on few areas of the game, our scrums and lineouts before the next game," he said.

"We're happy with the win so we're looking forward to the next game against Northern Bulls."
