Injury rules Nacebe out of rugby season

Tuesday, October 31, 2017

FIJI Airways Drua fly-half Peceli Nacebe will not be featuring in any of the remaining National Rugby Championship matches for this year.

This was confirmed by Drua coach Senirusi Seruvakula during an interview yesterday.

"Nacebe is out until next year," Seruvakula said.

Nacebe injured his ankle during their round three 31-14 win over New South Wales Country Eagles at Lawaqa Park, Sigatoka earlier this year.

He sustained the ankle injury four minutes in to the game and was replaced by Kini Douglas on that occasion.

The fly-half position has been shared among Douglas and Rio Gold medal winner and former 7s player Kitione Taliga.

The Drua will face Queensland Country in this week's NRC semi-finals.

According to the recent NRC team statistics, the Drua tops the ladder with the most off-loads with 103 and on the downside they also top the total number of penalties conceded with 104.
