Rugby League BY KILA NAO Sheer determination has put K20,000 into the pockets of Tuna Bay after they won the Justin Tkatchenko (JT) 9s senior men’s Cup Grand Final against Funeral Home Laumas Two at the Sir William Skate oval at Kaugere in the National Capital District yesterday. The entire crowd paused in the dying stages after Tuna Bay scored a try out wide to level the scores at 16-all with a conversion attempt yet to come from Karava Mafu. The kick from the sideline was rather a difficult one for Mafu who managed to hold his breath to kick the winner to run away with an 18-16 victory on the full-time hooter. However, both sides played their heads out scoring a converted try each to Lawrence Kuso Jr (Laumas) and Boge Frank (Tuna Bay) to take them through the halftime break 6-all. But the Laumas replied with good line breaks and sent John Horope for a converted try and another from Joseph Forova to take a handy 16-6 lead. But the Taurama boys replied with a brilliant individual play from Mafu who scored a converted try under the uprights to trail 12-16. They were never going to make it as time was not on their side but a good set play by Davis Mea in the opposition’s red zone allowed then to organise quickly and come up with a last ditch try at the corner to them to once level score at 16-16. The sideline kick from Mafu who added the extras to sneak a two-point buffer (18-16) to win the Cup and the handsome cash prize money will be testimony the Tuna Bay men will never forget for a long time. The Laumas were grateful to have received the runners-up trophy and K10,000 which is also a huge compliment for their efforts throughout the tournament. The other senior men’s category winners include Talai Spartans who won the Plate finals against FH Laumas 1 as runners-up while in the Bowl finals, Southern Son defeated JB Roosters. In the men’s Under 20s division, Six-Mile managed to hold off Tatana Islanders to claim the Cup while Apo Blacks claim the Plate finals and Talai Spartans 2 won the Bowl finals against Border Storms. The official presentation will be held this coming Friday at Ela Beach Hotel.
