DESPITE the 50-17 loss, Macuata maintained strong defence against Nadi’s vigorous attack at yesterday’s Skipper Cup Competition at Subrail Park yesterday.
Nadi opened the match three minutes into the first half with Kolaia Ivi’s unconverted try putting them in a lead of 5-0 to Nadi.
Three minutes after the first try, Nadi was awarded a penalty with Cyril Reece’s successful goal.
But Macuata responded with Sosi Daugunu’s unconverted try putting the match to an 8-5 score to Nadi.
Speed, skills and techniques shown by the Jetset boys resulted in seven tries before the first half taking Nadi to a lead of 35-5. Nadi opened the second half with Isaia’s Vuki’s unconverted try.
Macuata responded with double tries — one converted and one unconverted — in a span of two minutes.
Nadi manager Jeff Tamata was happy with the boys’ performance.
“There are a few areas we need to improve and that will be done before we take on Suva next week,” he said.
“This team is part of our development team and so far this season, we have lost only one game against Nadroga.”
