A young Ratu Filise side defeated Wardens 19-14 in their first match at the Super Series currently underway at Lawaqa Park in Sigatoka.
The Namatakula based side was outstanding in the match with many unknown players on show.
Ratu Filise which is one of the clubs in the country to breed their own players shut Wardens out which have the likes of Josua Vakurunabili and Asaeli ‘The Tank’ Tuivuaka.
The club is slowly rebuilding after most of their seasoned campaigners have joined other teams, however, captain Wame Ratuva says they’ll need to focus on their next games.
“Hats off to the boys for getting together with one heart I know we have a lot to improve on”
Ratu Filise will play Yamacia and Jerry Tuwai’s LAR Barbarians in their remaining pool matches.
