Rt Filise wins TC Yasa-Ana Appeal tournament

Ratu Filise has won the TC Yasa-Ana Appeal tournament after beating Red Diamond 17-7 in the cup final at Nasau Park in Levuka today.

Rt Filise scored the first points on the board through Saula Baikirewa but the conversion was unsuccessful, led by 5-nil.

A few minutes later Josese Yaya capitalised on a loose ball and put Sikeli Votunisiga in the clear for the second try, however, the conversion missed.

Red Diamond’s Serupepeli Nakita was able to put his side on the board after he broke away from some flimsy defence and planted the ball between the posts.

Nakita converted his own try for the 10-7 scoreline.

Another try to Rt Filise before the breather sealed the win for the Nadroga side.

The two sides played to a scoreless second half displaying some fine rugby in front of the Levuka crowd who flocked Nasau Park for the two-day tournament.
