B Division Results - Days 1 and 2


Friday, 27 August 2010
Theodore Park, Vatukoula

Ra 90 (14)
Tries: Sanaila Cavalevu (2), Jerry Wong (2), Tomasi Naitini (2), Jone Batirerega, Atunaisa Rabisabisa (3), Banuve Seci (3), Emori Bolabola Con: Netani Siga (4), Naca Ligairi (2), Asaeli Coakula (4)

Colo West 0 (0)

For the second game in a row Colo West enabled the opposition to run up a cricket score as Ra thrashed the newcomers by a massive 14 tries to nil. It was an unlikely score line considering the fact for the first half of the match Colo West more than held their own before capitulating so massively. Ra carry their destiny in their own hands now and must produce a strong victory against Vatukoula if they are to stand any chance of progressing to the semi-finals.

Vatukoula 29 (13)
Tries: Emori Ratu, Manasa Vatuloka, Josese Bolabasaga Con: Sainivalati Kenatale Pen: Sainivalati Kenatale (4)
YC: Saimoni Nadore, Nemani Vecenayawa

Ba 20 (10)
Tries: Apenisa Tawake, Maikeli Naulivou Conv: Apisai Toga (2) Pen: Apisai Toga (2)
YC: Ben Tabuasei, Eminoni Nabaro

With pundits predicting the likely winner of the B Division competition to be the team emerging victorious from this pool it was the Gold miners, Vatukoula, who underlined their credentials as they outlasted a feisty Ba outfit. To their credit Ba restricted the star studded Vatukoula side to only three tries which now means three of the four teams in this pool can still – mathematically speaking – all win the pool. You would however have to favour Vatukoula as likely winners as they require no more than a draw, or at least two points, to progress as winners of the pool.


Friday, 27 August 2010
Churchill Park, Lautoka

Waya 11 (8)
Try: Maleli Dawai Pen: Raogo Baleinakama, Maleli Dawai
YC: Maleli Dawai, Raogo Baleinakama

Naviti 8 (3)
Try: Peceli Salusalu
Pen: Tevita Volavola

For the second game in succession Naviti were involved in another nail biting finish only this time the side finished second best after losing out to Waya 11-8. Waya however proved to be their own worst enemies with indiscipline meaning they struggled to contain Naviti while having two players sin binned. To their credit Waya withstood intense pressure form Naviti to proceed to their final round game unbeaten and on top of their table.

Yasawa 12 (7)
Tries: Watisoni Raburou, Saukitoga Con: Sireli Lewarau
YC: Luke Kulinikoro, Ponipate Baleigaga

Nakasaleka 11 (3)
Try: Mosese Vatunitu Pen: Nolani Bola (2)
RC: Vilikesa Vuca

Yasawa put themselves back into contention with the slimmest of victories over Nakasaleka. The win making up for their two point loss to Naviti in round one. Nakasaleka’s second loss in a row means they now have no chance of making the semi-finals.


Friday, 27 August 2010
Lawaqa Park, Sigatoka

Serua 8 (8)
Try: Jone Muloilagi Pen: Sekonaia Tiko
YC: Atunaisa Veitata, Kenato Lobailagi

Naceva 12 (5)
Try: Sam Civo (2) Con: Joape Duilomaloma
YC: Maciu Derenavere

For the second game in succession Serua lost to an Island Zone team – their protagonists on this occasion were Naceva. Despite leading at the break Serua could not build on their strong first half performance and a Sam Civo try converted by Jopae Duilomaloma was enough to send Serua out of the tournament with one game remaining.

Malolo 24 (0)
Tries: Peni Nasovasova, Semi Tuivunilagi, Mala Vitilau, Tevita Tora Con: Semi Tuivunilagi, Bativunilagi Baleiono
YC: Manoa Sova, Sailasa Raivakadua

Matuku 3 (0)
Pen: Jolame Tamani
YC: Tevita Bainivalu 

Matuku were unable to perform their round one heroics as they faded away against current B Division champions Malolo. An upset seemed on the cards when they two sides went to the breather tied at nil all. However Malolo’s experience in the end won them the day with four second half tries ensuring they also claimed maximum points. Malolo now need only a single point in their final game against winless Serua for a spot in the B Division semi-finals.

Theodore Park, Vatukoula

Ra 26 (14)
Tries: Rusiate Tikolevu, Niumaia Nakuma, Ratu Meli Naivilawa Con: Netani Soga Pen: Netani Soga, Isoa Gavidi (2)
YC: Ilaitia Ravouvou, Saimoni Rokini, Akini Tuva

Ba 31 (15)
Tries: Setareki Koroi, Penaia Cokomata (3), Ponijese Tavaga Pen: Apisai Toga (2)
YC: Tomasi Naitini RC: Maika Burenivalu

Ba put on a powerful performance against Ra to outscore their neighbours by five tries to three with winger Penaia Cokomata claiming a hat trick. With the Sugar Town’s soccer team having bowed out in the early stages of the Battle of the Giants last week their rugby team at least gave Ba sports fans something to cheer about.

Leading by a single point at half time Ba eventually outlasted a spirited Ra team, despite Ba ending the game a man short with Maika Burenivalu red carded.

The game in the end proved a feisty affair with a total of four players being yellow carded on top of Burenivalu’s red card.

Vatukoula 75 (41)
Tries: Emori Ratu, Josateki Mami (2), Waisake Rasova, Leone Ratulevu (2) Nemani Vecenayawa, Tevita Nodrakoro, Joji Nikola, Aminiasi Gaunavou, Apenisa Rokosuka Con: Senivalati Kenatale (5), Soloveni Turaga (2) Pen: Senivalati Kenatale (1), Soloveni Turaga (1)
YC: Nemani Vecenayawa

Colo West 10 (3)
Try: Apakuki Nanovo Conv: Tomasi Qio Pen: Apenisa Kataroka
YC: Apakuki Nanuku, Jone Navonowale

Vatukoula enjoyed a stroll in the park as they helped themselves to 11 tries to thrash newcomers Colo West by 75-10 – one of the biggest scores ever recorded in B Division competition. The only blemish on Vatukoula’s performance was the yellow carding of lock Nemani Vecenayawa.

Clearly out of their depth Colo West will realise they have much to learn if they are going to make any impact in the B Division. However to put things in perspective the Goldminers were stacked with a host of former Digicel Cup players and with Inoke Male as coach there’s obviously no hiding their intentions this season as they bid to reclaim a place in the Major Division next season.

Churchill Park, Lautoka

Waya 26 (18)
Tries: Seru Ramusu (2), Saula Saukitoga (2) Pen: Jone Saunivalu (2)

Nakasaleka 6 (6)
Pen: Nolani Bola (2) 
YC: Nolani Bola

Waya proved too strong for their opponents from Kadavu – Nakasaleka – effectively sealing victory by halftime with an 18-6 lead. For Waya winger Seru Ramusu and flanker Saula Saukitoga both helped themselves to two tries each. All Nakasaleka’s points came from the boot of flyhalf Nolani Bola who kicked two penalties.

Naviti 18 (15)
Tries: Viliame Naqele, Tevita Volavola Con: Seveci Salusalu Pen: Seveci Salusalu (2)
YC: Seveci Salusalu, Jack Voli

Yasawa 17 (10)
Tries: Ponipate Yagodamu, Naelesoni Tonitoni Con: Sireli Lewalau (2) Pen: Sireli Lewalau
YC: Kelevi Naba, Naelesoni Tonitoni

A second half Seveci Salusalu penalty was enough to see Naviti through against Yasawa in what proved to be one of the closest contests of the day. Salusalu’s penalty making up for his sending off. Naviti held a five point lead at halftime but stern Yasawa defence meant that in the end they had to rely on Salusalu’s boot for victory. Both teams lacked discipline with each side having two players yellow carded.


Tuesday, 24 August 2010
Lawaqa Park, Sigatoka

Serua 8 (0)
Try: Ratu Orisi Vitukawalu Pen: Viliame Vedreyaki
YC: Iliesa Naituka

Matuku 10 (3)
Try: Jone Temo Con: Sailosi Vuniwaqa Pen: Jolame Tamani
YC: Simeli Bola  

Undoubtedly the upset of the day came when last year’s Island Zone champions proved they could mix it with the big boys in the B Division by seeing off Serua in a close encounter 10-8.
Leading 3-nil at halftime through a Jolame Tamani penalty Matuku sealed their victory with a ry to inside centre Jone Temo which was converted by Sailosi Vuniwaqa. Serua’s points came from a try to winger Ratu Orisi Vitukawalu and a penalty from flyhalf Viliame Vedreyaki.

Malolo 23 (15)
Tries: Peniasi Latu, Manoa Sova, Tevita Tora Con: Semi Tuivunilagi Pen: Semi Tuivunilagi DG: Semi Tuivunilagi
YC: Kaminieli Ratu

Naceva 22 (13)
Try: Iliesa Naqaravatu Con: Maciu Beranavere Pen: Maciu Beranavere (5)

Last year’s B Division champions were almost embarrassed by Island Zone team Naceva as they squeezed through by a single point thanks in part to a drop goal from flyhalf Semi Tuivunilagi. Malolo will have to work hard on their discipline which saw Naceva fullback Maciu Beranavere take maximum advantage of any Malolo indiscretion by converting five penalties and a conversion for a personal haul of 17 points.


Tuesday, 24 August 2010
Ganilau Park, Savusavu

Savusavu 25 (16)
Tries: Viliame Tuiwai, Epi Tabakau, Anasa Molisadrau Con: Kitione Kamikamica (2) Pen: Kitione Kamikamica (2)

Cakaudrove North 16 (16)
Tries: Eliki Kaura, Eminoni Vosamana Pen: Peceli Toa (2) 
YC: Manoa Kara

The boot of Savusavu flyhalf Kitione Kamikamica was enough to steer Savusavu safely through a tricky game against Cakaudrove North. With the scores tied 16-all at halftime two second half tries from Savusavu saw them come out on top as Kamikamica collected ten first half points with two conversions and two penalties. Cakudrove North’s cause in the game was not helped with the sinbinning of lock Manoa Kara.

Macuata 25 (15)

Try: Samu Antonio, Viliame Gonevulavula, Ropate Napolioni, Atama Bose Con: Sefanaia Tukana Pen: Sefanaia Tukana

Wailevu 0 (0)

Macuata produced the only shut out of the day as tries four tries and a conversion and penalty from Sefanai Tukana saw Macuata run out comfortable winners against Wailevu.
