It's an all Kaite affair

BOTH Kaite teams will face off in the final of the Naitasiri Samabula zone competition this weekend.

This after they both won their respective semi-finals at Ram Lakhan Park in Samabula on Saturday.

Kaite Highlanders overcame Vunidakua 24-14 in the first semi-final after which defending champions PCN Kaite beat Kecisemani 19-8.

Competition official Ilaisa Lakepa said both games went as expected with the favourites storming towards victory.

The PCN Kaite side is from the village of Nakorosule in Naitasiri and he said they took a lot of pride in their rugby.

Missing from their line-up was inspirational captain and former national sevens rep Senivalati Vunibola who played for Naitasiri against Suva yesterday in the Skipper Cup competition.

"However, Kaite was still strong and they played really well," Lakepa said.

"As defending champions, they have been in the situation before and their experience showed on the field in their output."

Meanwhile, Lakepa hailed new club Vunidakua for their efforts in the competition.
