It didn’t take the boys from Tailevu long to reply with a try of their own from Waisale Tora.

The Knights ran riot with Maiwiriwiri and Tomasi Seru adding another two tries just before the break to give them a 14-4 lead.

Maiwiriwiri opened the second spell with another try, while Ba Pro struggled to get their footing in the game.

The boys from Ba were not out of the game yet, as they continued to contest for the ball.

They managed to jot down two more tries to Pio Qalica and Anare Ratumaiyale, but this wasn’t enough as QVS was a better side, ending the game with a try to Apolosi Navukaro.
