Daugunu scores double in Rebels comeback win

Fijian winger Filipo Daugunu showed his athleticism to cross for a double in the second half for a morale-boosting 48-36 comeback victory for the Melbourne Rebels over the Western Force on Friday.

Apart from Daugunu, Carter Gordon and fullback-cum-wing Andrew Kellaway orchestrated a second-half revival at AAMI Park, with the Rebels scoring four unanswered tries.

As well as bagging a try, Gordon had a hand in most of the Rebels’ five-pointers while Kellaway scored twice in the first half to keep the home side in the game, trailing 24-19 at halftime.

Prop Taniela Tupou and lock Lukhan Salakaia-Loto, also put in big shifts to no doubt catch the eye of new Wallabies coach Joe Schmidt, who was in the stands.
