Change in game plan led to win: Tuitava

Natabua High School Captain Tomasi Tuitava says a change in game plan helped them score three converted tries in the second spell and beat defending champs QVS 21-19 in the second quarterfinal  of the Vodafone Super Deans Championship at HFC Bank Stadium in Suva today.
 
Tuitava told FijiLive that adding firepower and energising their defence was the key to the win.  
 
"I thank the Almighty for giving us this strength to win the game today."
 
"It was a really tough game and knowing that we have to play a champion team like QVS, we had to prepare a lot today."
 
"First half we did not score and then at the break coach changed our game plan."
 
"He said we were not defending wisely and our forwards were doing the hard work only."
 
"So we had to shift from focusing on the forwards to making our defense strong."
 
"Our backline was the reason how we overturned the game."
 
"Instead of playing short passes and falling to tackles, we started to tap and chase and get more technical in our try-scoring."
 
"We just had to make our backline strong and that’s what we did and our wingers got more energetic knowing we were yet to score," he explained.
