Positives for Fijian Drua

Paulini Ratulailai
Friday, October 13, 2017

FIJI Airways Drua coach Senirusi Seruvakula has called on his players to be confident of themselves.

Seruvakula said when they started they were new to the competition playing against Super Rugby players and every game they played they learnt from their mistakes.

"Everyone is learning and gaining confidence," he said.

"If you see our games, sometimes in the first half we're lost and in the second half we come back strong.

"So we've changed the way we play and we've put in a lot of consistency and hard work.

"There were no excuse for our loss to Canberra Vikings we were just beaten by a good team and we just had to take it on the chin and learn from our mistakes.

"We regrouped and showed it against Greater Sydney Rams and we can still improve in our last game."

He added with two more games left the boys have to cope with changing their game plan.

"Everybody has noticed that we always play wide but now we're playing a direct game and running into space. It took us three days to work on that and our game next week will be a tough game."

Seruvakula said they were just working on their fitness and their strength and conditioning.

"We working on our clarity and today is going to be our last day of physical training and we will break off from camp and we will meet again on Tuesday next week at Tokatoka.

"We need to work on our restart, line up and our zone."

The extended squad has its training session at Buckhurst Ground in Suva yesterday.
