Beqa's rugby exposure

Maciu Malo
Friday, August 29, 2014

BEQA was humbled by Malolo 68-12 in its last B-Division game at Lautoka's Churchill Park yesterday.

But coach Ravuama Ragogo was satisfied with the exposure of his players in their first B-Division campaign.

He said the side had learnt a lot of good lessons during the week-long competition.

"This is our first year in the B Division and I am satisfied with the players performances," said Ragogo.

"Our aim for the competition was to expose our players and I am happy that the boys have gauged their standard against other B Division teams.

"We have learnt a good lesson and we are hopeful of a better outing next year."

He said more than $8000 was used for the rugby tour.

"I think money is not an issue because the idea was to expose our players to this competition," said Ragogo.

Malolo flyer Nacanieli Labalaba was the toast of the Malolo side scoring a hatric in their 11-try romp to end Malolo's B Division campaign on a high note.

The Mosese Volavola-coached side had lost to Yasawa and Ba early in the competition.
