Hawks win AFL David Rodan Cup

By Torika Tokalau

Port Adelaide’s David Rodan says he was blown away by the talent that was displayed today in the AFL Fiji David Rodan Cup at the Veiuto grounds.

More then 80 students from 14 different schools in Suva and Nausori was represented in six teams that played round robin matches.

“These boys have been in the sport for a little less than a year, some more but the knowledge they possess is simply mind blowing,” Rodan said.

He added, himself and fellow AFL Port Adelaide star, Alipate Carlile was not expecting the players to have fully grasped the rules and techniques of the game.

“The kicking game and the handballing – they have it. Hopefully we can keep it together and shed what knowledge we have in the next couple of days that we are here.”

Meanwhile Hawks walked away with the David Rodan Cup after they thrashed the tigers 48-12 in the grand final.

Hawks had topped Pool B with 12 points, winning all their three pool games.

Results:
Saints 43-24 Bulldogs, Hawks 22-7 Bombers, Magpies 11-4 Tigers, Lions 18-Roos, Saints 27-32 Tigers, Hawks 37-9 Roos, Bulldogs 30-13 Magpies, Bombers 24-15 Lions, Saints 17-22 Magpies, Hawks 25-15 Lions, Bulldogs 15-20 Tigers, Bombers 22-15 Roos
