Bulls in top form

THE Naitasiri Northern Bulls maintained its unbeaten run in pool stages of the B Division competition with a 46-15 triumph over Kadavu at Ratu Cakobau Park yesterday.

Crossing the white line seven times, the Handy Finance-sponsored Bulls looked to be a force to be reckoned with when the competition enters the knockout stages next week.

After failing to qualify for the semi-finals last year, the Manasa Radrotini-coached side is eager to win the B divison title.

Radroniti who guided Naitasiri Highlanders to win double provincial titles in the early 2000 will be hoping to create another piece of history with the Bulls.

Meanwhile, in the other B-division match, Serua edged Rewa 25-28 to end its campaign on a winning note.

Serua coach Paula Nasara said his troops played a better performance against Rewa, following their 27-11 loss to the Bulls last week.

"It's a good performance from the boys, much better than the previous game," he said.

Serua trailed 5-15 at the break before storming back into game, scoring two tries to winger Emosi Yabaki and prop Mitieli Matainavure and Kaliova Masau knocking over three penalties.

"We're looking at a three-year development plan, we're satisfied with this year's achievement so we hope we to be back next season."
