POLICE Blues have done it again walking away $5000 richer.

The law enforcement officers defeated Calia 1 33-10 during the Waimanu 7s tournament at Ratu Cakobau Park in Nausori on Saturday.

Captain Keponi Paul scored the opening try followed by a successful conversion to lead 7-0.

Another unconverted try from Rusiate Matai extended their lead to 12-0. But the Naitasiri-based team came in strong with Jese Rokosuka scoring their first try but the conversion was unsuccessful with Police leading 12-5.

Few minutes into the kick-off two yellow cards were handed to both teams for a dangerous tackle. Police again scored another try from Glen Cakautini with a successful conversion.

Both teams showed pure talent and strength as they battled it out but Police dominated the first half.

Tries from Ratu Meli Kurisaru, Timoci Ratulolo and another try from Matai in the second half extended their lead.

Epeli Bokadi of Calia scored another try but it wasn't enough to secure a win.

Team manager Suliano Teviya said the boys stuck to their game plan.

"The boys continued the momentum taking each game at a time," he said.

"We have a number of injuries in the team, we will look into that but overall we were expecting a tough game from Calia so hats off to those young boys they really had us running around."

Police defeated Congo Waimanu Gold 34-7 in the quarter-finals and later beat Tabadamu 12-7 in the semifinals.
