The Namosi side regrouped in the second spell, scoring two tries which came from Mosese Voka and a final try from Joeli Tuberi to secure their win.

Namosi Coach, Josateki Savou says even though they missed out the Skipper Cup title, they are happy that they have achieved their second goal which is to win the trophy.

“We were looking forward to winning both trophies and that was our aim this year and we’ve missed out the Skipper Cup but we went back and analyzed our game and we made it this afternoon.”

Captain Bill Veikoso thanked his players for playing the whole 80-minute game.

“It’s an amazing feeling and can’t really thank the boys enough for the game today and I think we had to really dig deep after down for three tries to nil and credit to the boys, the way they came back and that shows the character that’s on the team.”

Namosi will defend the trophy next week.

Meanwhile, Navosa will defend the HFC Bank Ratu Josaia Bainimarama Shield at 3pm tomorrow at Lawaqa Park in Sigatoka.
