DEFENDING champions Police are on track to defend the Escott Shield in the Suva Rugby Union (SRU) competition.

The side defeated last year's finalist Navy 43-8 in the last of the round robin matches in the RC Manubhai sponsored competition at the ANZ Stadium in Suva on Saturday.

In the Premier grade, Army Green overcame Harlequins 41-16 while the Fiji Bitter National Fire Authority (NFA) side thrashed Savura 54-10.

The win allowed Army to maintain its lead on the points table as they prepare to play the remaining premier match against NFA next week.

Army's win has resulted in Army maintaining its lead in the SRU points table going into the final round of the competition next week. The only Premier game left is between NFA and Navy.

Concrete Solutions Qauia Green defeated Grammar 27-23 in the Ambassadors Grade while FMF USON overcame Breakthrough 21-17.

In the Fulton Hogan-sponsored Koroturaga competition quarter-finals, USP Islanders beat Lomai Black 33-12, Ricoh Toorak Blues beat Wakanisila 16-5, QVSOB beat Police White 15-6 and SSFL Stallions won by default over Tovata.

In a statement, SRU Chairman John O'Connor praised the performance of all the teams in the competition.

"The Premier Grade matches were highly competitive as teams fought tooth and nail in contention for the final spots in the quarter-finals," he said.

"Police, Army and NFA are the strong contenders to fight for the Escott Shield in the Premier Grade."
