6 July, 2019, 4:43 pm
THE Nadroga rugby side defeated Nadi 20-3 in the HFC Bank Farebrother Trophy Challenge this afternoon.
Nadi did not look like the holders from the beginning as the rush-up defense and counter-attacking rugby from the Stallions proved to be the difference.
Apisalome Waqatabu and Amenoni Nasilasila were brilliant at first-five and full-back respectively with the duo scoring all of Nadroga’s twenty points in the match.
Waqatabu scored the lone try of the first spell as NAdroga led 10-3 at half-time.
It was an entertaining first half with Nadi knocking the ball on at least twice close to Nadroga’s try line.
Nasilasila sealed the deal with a try with nine minutes remaining on the clock.
Nadroga will host Suva in the next challenge at Lawaqa Park next week.
