Navy thumps Marist, retains Escott Shield

NAVY thumped Marist 32-12 to successfully defend the Escott Shield during the Suva Rugby competition at Bidesi Ground in Suva yesterday.

The sailors dominated the game and proved too strong for Marist to retain the title after three consecutive challenges.

The side played structured rugby and fully used the possession and territory advantage to secure the huge win.

Navy will face QVSOB in the next challenge.

Meanwhile, Nasinu was crowned the new Koroturaga Shield champions after defeating holders Police White 9-8 in a nail-biting encounter yesterday.

Nasinu scored all their points from penalty kicks while Police White scored their points from a try and a penalty.

Delainavesi will challenge Nasinu next weekend.
