10 October, 2019, 5:28 pm
FIJI Airways Fijian Drua coach Senirusi Seruvakula is pulling out all the big guns in his starting 23 as the National Rugby Championship title holders look to secure a semifinal berth this weekend.
“We want to move and keep our title defence hope alive,” Seruvakula said.
“For this, we need to have a positive outcome on Saturday.
“I have to name our strongest side for this match because we need to win and qualify for the semi-final.
“Our players are injury-free and have been outstanding in the past matches.”
BLK Nadroga fullback Apisalome Waqatabu has returned for their critical final fixture against Bond University Queensland Country at Lawaqa Park this Saturday, October 12, 2019.
Waqatabu was a stalwart of the 2018 NRC Championship winning side and will rejoin the boys in blue to fight to keep their finals hopes alive.
With the inclusion of Waqatabu, for the first time this season, Seruvakula named 13 players from the 2018 team in his starting line-up.
Seruvakula has urged fans to come in numbers and support the Drua who are playing at Lawaqa Park in Rugby Town for the first time in two seasons.
The Fiji Airways Fijian Drua will face Queensland Country at 2pm tomorrow at Lawaqa Park in Sigatoka.
