NAITASIRI's crucial win over Vatukoula has placed them in second spot in the Skipper Cup competition.

Last week, the Highlanders dedicated the narrow 18-13 win to their late coach Eroni Vereivalu and now trail Nadroga by 10 points on the table.

The Stallions have a commanding lead with 43points, maintaining a clean record from nine games this season after another stunning win against Lautoka over the weekend.

Nadi's eight-try romp of Macuata ensured them a third spot ahead of Suva. Both sides are locked at 30 points apiece however, the Jetsetters have the points difference advantage.

Namosi and Northland are still in the run for the top-four placing. The Timoci Wainiqolo-coaches Namosi side have 28 points while Northland trail with a point.

Wainiqolo said they needed to win their remaining games.

"We need to regroup before our next game," he told Times Sport after the Suva match.

"We hope to lift our performance to another level."

Tailevu, 19 and Vatukoula, 18 have outside chances of making the play-offs. Both teams needed bonus-point wins in the remaining two matches and hope other results go their way for a chance to qualify for the semi-finals.

Ovalau which has 11 points will want to finish its season on a high note while Lautoka, Tavua and Macuata are fighting to avoid the promotion relegation match. The two western-based teams have seven points adrift while Macuata has six.

Meanwhile, in the under-20 competition, Nadi, Nadroga, Tailevu and Suva are in the top four after round nine.

The Skipper Cup continues this weekend.
