CAPTAIN Ilaitia Rogorogovalu scored a try a few seconds before the final whistle to help his Saru Dragons side continue their winning run in the Vodafone Cup Top 8 competition.

The last minute try allowed the KBL-sponsored side to come from behind to register a 18-15 win over the Fairtrade Makoi Bulldogs at the Suva Grammar School grounds yesterday.

Makoi was leading 15-14 in the dying stages of the game but table leaders Saru ensured they maintained their dream run in the competition.

Saru coach Tevita Volavola said his side worked hard to earn the victory.

"Since most of our senior players are injured, we had to use players from our reserve grade for this match," he said.

"The odds were stacked against us and it was a tough match but we managed to come away with a win."

Makoi manager Apolosi Dausiga said his players lost concentration in the later stages of the match.

"It was a very tough battle and just a lapse in concentration allowed Saru to get the winning try," he said.

In other Top 8 matches, Dee Cees Nadera Panthers beat Burenitu Cowboys 28-16 while Pack Leader Nabua Broncos thrashed Topline Warriors 32-6.
