Namosi has created history after beating Nadroga 15-8 for the first time in the Farebrother Challenge at Lawaqa Park today.

This also serves as a win for Namosi in round two of the Skipper Cup Competition.

Namosi’s tries came from Aseri Robanakadavu and Vinaiya Habosi with a successful penalty from Peni Matawalu.

Namosi led 10-3 at half time.

Rupeni Nasiga scored the lone try for Nadroga in the second half with Peceli Nacebe missing the conversion from right infront of the post.

Nadroga lacked discipline as Joeli Lutumailagi received a yellow-card in the first half, for a dangerous tackle.

Namosi’s Robanakadavu and Jone Koroiduadua of Nadroga both got yellow-carded in the second half for a scuffle.

Namosi’s defence stood strong when Nadroga was camping on their try line during the last few minutes of the game.

They stole three of Nadroga’s line-out’s, one of which resulted in their second try.

Sevuloni Mocenacagi was heavily marked during the game and failed to spark as the Namosi defence quickly contained him every time he held possession.

In other Skipper Cup matches, Suva beat Yasawa 10-3, Tailevu beat Lautoka 26-17 while Naitasiri thrashed Nadi 23-8.

Namosi will now take on Naitasiri in the next Farebrother Challenge.

In the Under 19 competition, Naitasiri thrashed Nadi 32-10, Lautoka beat Tailevu 20-19, Nadroga beat Namosi 12-10 while Yasawa beat Suva 15-12.

In the Women’s division, Suva beat Yasawa 29-12, Lautoka edged Tailevu 23-22, Naitasiri beat Nadi 37-12 while Namosi lost to Nadroga 20-17.
