BLK Tailevu and Qaqa Naitasiri both drew 15-all in the last round of the Skipper Cup competition held at Ratu Cakobau Park in Nausori this afternoon.

Naitasiri led by 7-5 in the first half.

Tailevu manager Levani Matea said he was happy with the boys’ performance.

“Playing against one of the champions is a good platform for the players and to match them up in today’s game is a bonus performance for them all,” Matea said.

Naitasiri was given a yellow card to left centre Tomasi Vula for a dangerous tackle.

They will now wait for the final results as to who they will play in the semi-finals next weekend.

Despite the draw, Naitasiri still wins and have secured a spot in the semi-final.

Tailevu, on the other hand, will wait and see who they will play next week.
