Army in the final

NUKU ruined its chances of upsetting Army in the semi-final of the Tailevu Rugby Union club competition at Ratu Cakobau Park Ground Two yesterday.

A late penalty in the final two minutes in front of the post could have gifted Nuku a win. However, missing the golden opportunity resulted in them losing 23-25 as Army progressed through to defend its Senior A title in the Top 4 competition against Vunimono next week.

Vunimono beat Mokani 20-0 in the second semi-final to set up a replay of last year's semi-final whereby the military men defeated Vunimono.

TRU club games match commissioner Maikeli Naikawakawavesi said the Army and Nuku game was a thriller.

Meanwhile in the Senior B semi-finals, Natogadravu lost 3-10 to Nakelo and Lomainasau beat Levukana 10-0.

In the Bottom 4 semi-finals, Maumi won by default against Raralevu in the first Senior B semi-final and awaits the winner of Naila and Vunivaivai match to be played on Tuesday.

In the Senior A grade, Naqeledamu won by default against Dravuni and will play Bau in the final next Saturday.
