All in One Builders Nadi have defeated Koromakawa Rentals and Tours Navua 4-1 in the first match of the Punjas Battle of the Giants tournament at Churchill Park.

Josua Tawake scored the first two goals for Nadi.

Nadi led 2-0 at halftime.

Navua goalkeeper Rusiate Amasio then scored an own goal making the scoreline 3-nil.
