STANDOFF Jo Vetaukula and Aminiasi Yaroi sparked Saru Dragons to a 30-6 win over Burenitu Cowboys during their Top 8 Fiji National Rugby League clash at the Ra High School grounds yesterday.

The duo who recently returned from a six-month stint in Cook Islands with Matererega Tupapa Panthers rugby league club made their presence felt, adding firepower to help the Dragons clinch its second win in two weeks.

Against Nabua Broncos last week, Vetaukula and Yaroi were instrumental in the 34-12 win and yesterday, they proved their worth, adding their wealth of experience to a performance that stunned the Cowboys in front of its home fans.

Dragons official Lagilagi Golea said it was another top result produced by the Lautoka-based club.

"It's a good win and I thank the boys for the effort," he said.

"Jo (Vetaukula) and Yaroi again played really well."

Meanwhile, the Lautoka Crushers continued its fine form against Vuda Jets with another try-raking performance.

The side thumped the Jets 64-2 in the premier division in Lautoka. Last week, the Crushers defeated Lautoka Rabbitohs 48-0.

Golea said the Crushers had hit the peak of its performance and they're starting to hit the mark now.

In another result, Lautoka Warriors edged Wests Tigers 16-14.
