Dominant Mesozoic varanids?



Were there any varanids in the Mesozoic comparable in size to Megalania 
prisca (or was that grand fellow a Meganesian fluke)?  If so, where have 
they been found and when did they live?  Is there any evidence to 
indicate that, in certain special environments (islands), lizards may 
have been the top predators as they were in Pleistocene "Australia," 
despite the presence of dinosaurs (I'm talking post-Triassic, of 
course)?
