DEFENDING B Division champions Ba are out of title contention after losing a protest in Pool A of the competition.

The protest was filed by Beqa after going down to Ba 23-12 at Churchill Park in Lautoka last week.

Match commissioner Penisoni Waki said the protest was about player registration.

Waki said Ba had fielded a player in the match who was not on the original team registration.

"The player in concern was named on the team slip for the match but was not registered on the original team registration," he said.

"Hence Beqa was awarded the match. Beqa also filed a protest against Yasawa claiming that majority of the players in the team were registered with the Lautoka Rugby Union.

"After investigations it was revealed that some players were representing the clubs in the Lautoka competition.

"So Beqa was awarded that match also."

After the protests findings, Malolo moved up to the top of the group standings with 11 points from two wins and collecting a bonus point each for scoring more than four tries in a match and losing within seven points in another.

The B Division semi-finals are scheduled for next Saturday at Churchill Park.
