Skipper Cup champion Suva survived a scare from newcomers Ba winning 28-16 in the senior men's quarter final at Albert Park.

Suva was given a good run for their money as Ba threatened their defence throughout the game.

Suva held a 12-8 lead at halftime after scoring two tries and a conversion while Ba scored an unconverted try and a penalty kick at goal.

Suva went on to score a further 16 points in the second half through a converted try, 2 penalty kicks at goal and a drop goal, while Ba managed to score another unconverted try and a penalty kick for the final score.

Suva had the services of a few Fiji Airways Men's National 7s reps in the likes of Terio Tamani, Tira Welagi and Sanaila Siqila who all started today and made a huge difference in the game.
