RELATIVES of well-known rugby players featured prominently for the Cuvu College under-15 side during their Coke Zero Deans quarter-final against Saint John's College yesterday.

The younger brother of Jiuta Lutumailagi, John Douglas played at first receiver while New Zealand 7s international Wise Naholo's younger sibling Kiniviliame Natuna played at inside-centre.

The duo played well with Natuna crossing over for a try while Douglas showed glimpses of a rising star despite losing to SJC.

Team manager Eparama Rasolo said they had achieved the goal for the season.

He said they would be back next season.

"We're happy with the result," he said.

"It is our dream to be here and I thank the boys for a good game."

He said the duo of Douglas and Natuna played well.

"Yes we have two players in the team, the younger brothers of Naholo and Lutumailagi.

"They played well. Overall I think we failed to play to our game plan."

He said most of the players were playing for the first time at national level.

"We're still learning and to play a team like St John's is a huge exposure for the players. Most of them are making their first trip to Suva.

"But we will be back next year."
