Scrappy and indiscipline play by the Sigatoka based side cost them the game with Mamaqa clinching a close 14-10 win in their second pool match at Lawaqa Park in Sigatoka.
The Tavualevu in Tavua team were leading at 7-5 at the breather.
They were reduced to five after two players were sent off for foul play which gave Tuva the opportunity to strike back and take the lead 10-5 thanks to a try to Vilikesa Ratu.
However, Mamaqa held on to clinch victory at the crucial moment.
