Army wins Sukuna Bowl

October 20, 2017 5:44 pm

The Army Rugby team has been crowned the champions of the ANZ Sukuna Bowl at ANZ Stadium in Suva.

The Republic of Fiji Military Forces beat defending champions Police 19-12, in a crucial eighty minutes of rugby last night.

The Army brigade led 13-7 during the half-time break and maintained composure in the second spell. Police scored a try but were unfortunate in getting the extras.

With a 13-12 lead to the Army in the 60th minute of play, heavy rain didn’t stop the Men in Red from pushing for penalties against the Police side.

Army played a tactical game and came away with two penalties which led them to victory.
