Ragose praises Nadroga’s performance

NADROGA will always be Nadroga.

Those were the words of Namosi prop Viliame Ragose as he made an analysis of yesterday’s Skipper Cup final as his team lost to Nadroga at Nadi’s Prince Charles Park.

Ragose who hails from Tau in Nadroga is serving a five-year term in prison.

He added they tried their best to match Nadroga in the forwards but could not.

“Nadroga was too good, both in the forwards and back line.

“We did our best but I believe our best was not good enough, they ripped us apart and every move we made they already knew it and that is from experience.

“We learnt a lot from them and I hope when I get my release from prison I will certainly play for my province,” he said.

First five-eighth Kitione Taliga said it was difficult to penetrate the Nadroga defensive line.

“Nadroga’s loosemen were all marking me and I tried my best but could not function properly.

“But it was a good game and I enjoyed it,” he said.

The Dratabu man said he was ready to join the Fiji 7s team as they prepare for the Dubai tournament at the end of this year.

His captain Risiate Tadulala admitted Nadroga was superior in all facets of the game.

“Nadroga was too good,” said the Totoya man from Lau.
