Farmer Joe Supermarket lends a Super hand

Taula Apia Rugby Union Shield holder, and the champion of the Under 20 for Pool A, is none other than the resilient SCOPA Rugby Club. 

The shield is proudly sponsored by Farmer Joe Supermarket. 

SCOPA defeated BBE Vaiala, the Farmer Joe Supermarket Shield holder from last year, 23-18, in a hard fought game two weeks ago. 

The determined men in yellow and maroon displayed superb skills, and confidence, thus dominating their game in many areas until the final whistle sounded. 

Last week SCOPA retained the shield after a convincing win against Toaula from Vailima

SCOPA Under 20 is also the champion of Pool A and holder of the Minister of Justice Trophy since the beginning of the tournament. Both SCOPA Senior A and Under 20 teams have had a bye this week. 

The Chairman of the Taula Apia Rugby Union, Fuimaono Dickie Tafua and the Executive Committee acknowledge Farmer Joe Supermarket for their kindness and great support in strengthening the development of rugby in the Taula Apia Rugby Union, also, our country as a whole.
