SABETO Roosters has dedicated their under-18 and reserve grade wins to their brothers and last year’s Vodafone Cup winner.
The former champion was bundled out by Makoi Bulldogs in the Top 8 semi-final last weekend.
Reserve grade coach Voate Naravu said the loss of their main team inspired the U18 and senior reserve teams to win their respective titles.
The U18 side defeated Saru Dragons 18-14 while the senior reserve downed the Dragons 24-14 in another exciting affair.
Naravu said he was happy with the outcome of their teams in the finals.
“Our aim was to take the both titles to Sabeto after our main team failed to defend the Top 8 title,” he said.
“We dedicate this win to our Top 8 team members and we hope our win has restored some pride back for the club.
“We also dedicate this win to the people of Betoraurau for their support throughout the season.”
He said the aim was to defend both titles next season.
