Suva vs Ba match in Skipper cup round 1 declared a friendly match after Ba wore different sponsored jersey

Ba Rugby Union coach Vilimoni Delasau has expressed his disappointment and says they have been unfairly treated today after their round 1 Skipper Cup match against Suva was declared a friendly match.

This was due to the Ba team wearing BLK sponsored jersey and not the QAQA sponsored jersey issued to them by the Fiji Rugby Union.

The game was won by Suva 29-0 but no points were given to the winning side after the decision was made before the game kicked off.

Delasau says they were not even contacted by the FRU to at least get the jersey sizes of the players but they just issued the jersey that did not even fit the players.

He says they spent over $8,000 to prepare for this match and this is how it turned out.

The former Flying Fijians winger adds the jersey that was issued to them by FRU was like the size of school kids' uniforms.

He says it is really sad to see that they have been treated unfairly and adds that someone is not thinking right.

Suva led the game at halftime 19-0 through 3 tries and two conversions.

Ba gave Suva a good run for their money in the second spell as the Capital City side only managed to score 2 unconverted tries.
