THE inexperienced KBL Saru Dragons handed the Makoi Bulldogs its first defeat in the Vodafone Cup Top Eight competition at Churchill Park in Lautoka last Saturday.

The Dragons without many of their senior reps downed the Bulldogs 20-14.

Ilaitia Volavola scored a brace of tries for the hosts while Esira Dokoni dotted down the other. Etuate Tevita kicked three penalties and a conversion.

Apisai Taoba scored the lone try for the visitors while Ilikena Niumataiwalu kicked four penalties and a conversion.

Dragons coach Tevita Volavola said it was good to bounce back after losing to the Nadera Panthers last week.

"We are proud of the efforts of the players," he said.

"This year we are giving the younger players more game time at the top flight after losing our senior players to overseas contracts.

"They have been working well together. This year's competition is tougher and we are treating each game as the final."

The Dragons will take on the Nabua Broncos next.

Second rower Waisea Bati is out of the clash after picking up an injury yesterday.

The Dragons players who have secured overseas contracts are Netava Rokoliwa, Seruvi Ralulu, Josefa Waibune and Amaniasi Aroi.
