Dulo try gives Nadro U20 title

A BLINDSIDE intercept from Jonasa Dulo handed the Skipper Cup under-20 title to Nadroga.

Dulo's five-pointer was the only try of the match. The young Stallions beat the defending champions 8-3 at Lawaqa Park to walk away $15,000 richer.

The error-ridden game was fairly contested in a physical affair.

Nadi registered the first points via a penalty to fullback Setareki Tuicuvu.

Nadroga's skipper and inside centre Josese Kurokavu levelled the score at the stroke of halftime.

Nadroga dominated possession in the second spell and often threatened Nadi's defensive lines.

However, the jetsetters boys failed to find their rhythm.

Dulo gambled his defensive run when he took off from the side of the ruck and intercepted a Nadi attack.

The blindside flanker raced 25 yards, taking three defenders with him to put his side in the lead, 8-3.

Nadi team manager Jeff Tamata said his troops played well.

"It was unfortunate to lose but I think the boys played well," he said.

"That Nadroga player who scored the intercept try looked to be in an offisde position but the referee did not see it.

"The ref has made the decision and its final, congratulations to Nadroga."

Nadroga edged Tailevu in the semi-final last week.
