Ba Pro then picked up the momentum and dominated the second spell of play adding more points to their scoreboard.

Cuvu, on the other hand, fought back and managed a try however this was not enough for them to secure a win. Ba Pro coach Filipe Alifereti was happy with the performance of the boys.

He said the boys had played according to their game plan.

Alifereti added that they would now seek ways to improve their errors before their next match.
