FORMER national sevens rep Senivalati Vunibola featured prominently for defending champions PCN Kaite in their 15-7 win over Lami Gold in the quarter-final of the Naitasiri Rugby Union Samabula zone competition.

The Naitasiri captain played the whole 80 minutes of the match and marshalled his troops to victory at Ram Lakhan Park in Samabula on Saturday.

Interim committee member of the zone Ilaisa Lakepa said the veteran was influential in the match as his presence proved to be the difference in the side.

"He is a real workhorse," he said.

"He made every tackle count and he was hard to bring down when he had the ball in hand.

"He dominated at the line-outs and did what a captain is supposed to do and that is to rally the troops to victory."

In other quarter-finals, the Kaite Highlanders scraped through to a 12-11 win over Duavata with a try in the dying stages of the match after trailing throughout the match.

Kecisemani booked their place in the semi-finals without breaking a sweat to win by default as their opponents Evergreen did not show up.

And Vunidakua edged Golden Eagles 8-5 in another quarter-final.

In the semi-final, PCN Kaite will face Vunidakua while Kaite Highlanders will take on Kecisemani.
