Nukz Power played FBI with a convincing win of 12 – 1 at the 2024 Touch Rugby Competition at the National Stadium.

Touch Association president Julieanne (Julz) Westrupp said Rima Browne scored a hat trick, while behind her was mum and daughter Sun and Mahana, both scoring 2 tries each. 

Keziah Lewis being the man of the match for team FBI managed a try in the far corner to put one on the scoreboard.

On the other side was game of the day between Bounty and Nikz. 

Westrupp said the first half was a little rattled as mum and daughters from team Nikz, Edith, Maeva and Mele attacked the 7 metre line from time to time. 

She said Bounty also executed plays in attack with the experience of Monica, Pare and Hina. 

The half time score was 2 -1 to Bounty with the second half becoming more intense. 

“Monica managed to score 2 tries along with Maueni scoring a try allowing Bounty to win the game with a score of 3 - 2.”

Both Speedy Nicole Tiaore and Maeva scored a try each, she said.

In the men's category, Warriors took on KAPs. 

Westrupp said the rain may have unsettled both teams as they had a few drop balls.

“The young developing team from KAPs tried to uphold the strong Warriors team but were unfortunate.  Scoring a try for the Warriors were Vou, Tama, Teaui and 2 tries both to John Worry and Tua Tom.”

Tries scored by KAPS were Kaleb, Paul, Viiga and Chris Bishop with a score of 7 - 4. 

She said the other men's team was just as tough between GAT and Nukz Power. 

“GAT leading the men's category again showed they deserve to be there with Oscar scoring a hat trick and Maru, Puna and Allan scoring a try each.”

Nukz Power managed 4 tries which gave a final score of 6 - 4 to GAT.
