The Taula Apia Rugby Union kicked off the start of Season with a fight for the Molesi Shield between B.B.E Vaiala and Toaula.

B.B.E Vaiala went on to dominate Toaula with a final score of 50-17. 

B.B.E Vaiala fielded a star studded team with the likes of Captain, Alatasi Tupou and Patrick Fa’apale.  Vaiala set the tempo of the match with their fast backline and equally fast loose forwards.

With Fa’apale conducting the backline as First-Five, the team held a strong lead through out the entire game.

Still, Toaula had bright moments in the final match. Toaula’s powerful forward pack help keep Toaula afloat. 

However, Vaiala’s strong defensive line was absolutely spot on.  Blackie held a strong defensive line in the most crucial areas of the game which seemed almost impenetrable.
