FORMER Naitasiri rep Emosi Tolavatu scored a brilliant try to help his PCN Kaite side win their ninth title in the Naitasiri Samabula zone competition.

PCN Kaite beat fellow teammates Kaite Highlanders 18-12 in a hard fought final at Ram Lakhan Park in Samabula on Saturday.

Tolavatu, playing at number 8, linked well with the forwards and backline to lead continues attacks at the Highlanders line.

After trailing 6-9 at half-times, tries to Tolavatu and loose-head prop Joela Babitu, PCN Kaite pulled off a stunning come back to win the title they lost to Police last year.

Prior to that loss, Kaite had been winning the title for eight years in a row.

Competition official Ilaisa Lakepa said friendship was put aside for 80 minutes on the field.

"It was tough and intense affair with pride on the line," he said.

"As a result, more than half the team on each side was yellow carded in the match."

Both teams were sponsored by Pacific Community Network and PCN Kaite took home the Bainimarama Shield after the win.

Meanwhile, Vunidakua took home the Ro Sakuwai Shield in the third/fourth place play-off without breaking a sweat as they won by default.

"Their opponents Kecisemani did not show up for the match."
