DEFENDING champions Kaite is the team to beat in the Naitasiri Rugby Union Samabula zone competition.

The club has two teams in the competition and both of them will compete in the quarter-final on Saturday at Ram Lakhan Park in Samabula.

Interim committee member Ilaisa Lakepa said the Kaite Highlanders finished at the top of the table at the end of the round robin competition.

"Team Kaite has established its name in the competition since it had begun," he said.

"Currently, they have registered two teams and they are both in the quarterfinals.

"The team is from the village of Nakorosule, Naitasiri and they take a lot of pride in their rugby."

He said Duavata, Lami Gold and Vunidakua are the teams that could cause upsets in the quarter-finals.

"Team Duavata is lowly ranked but lately they are coming together as a team with players from Serea Village adding guts and power.

"They also have experience players in the form of the Vatuvoka brothers.

"Team Lami Gold has been showing good form in the later stages of the competition, with a very explosive and enterprising backline.

"Team Vunidakua is a well organised group, coached by former Fiji Rep, Jonetani Vula, the team may spring surprises.

"The teams are considered underdogs because though they are not in the top ranking but their recent performances have shown that they are capable of causing upsets."

Draws: Q1: Kaite Highlanders-Duavata, Q2: Vunidakua-Golden Eagles, Q3: Kecisemani-Evergreen, Q4: Lami Gold-PCN Kaite.
