Nadroga wins Skipper Cup competition

July 15, 2017 4:54 am

The Nadroga rugby side has won the Skipper Cup title thumping Namosi 40-20 in the final today.

Namosi did take a challenge to Lawaqa Park as they led 13-7 at the break but that is all they had to offer as the Stallions showed in the second spell why they are the traditional champions of Fijian rugby.

Nadroga fly half, Peceli Nacebe had a man of the match performance, scoring two tries and setting up another.

Nacebe scored his first try within two minutes of the start to see the home side leading 7-nil.

Namosi slowly got settled and scored a try and added two penalties to lead 13-7 at the break.

The Stallions came out strong in the second spell as Nacebe setup hooker Ratu Naisa Navuna for a try and minutes later scored one himself.

Navuna grabbed his second try with a rolling roll.

Number eight Eramasi Radrodro also added two tries in the second spell to seal the win for the Stallions.

Atu Maiono scored a consolation try for Namosi in the 75th minute.

Nadroga received $30,000 for the win while Namosi walked away with $15,000.
