THE Fiji Airways Drua team defeated Sydney Rays 34-31 in a comeback victory during the fourth round of the National Rugby Championship earlier this afternoon.
The Drua scored six tries while the Rays managed five.
Nippy fly-half Alivereti Veitokani scored their first try in the last five minutes of the first half with an unsuccessful conversion from Apisalome Waqatabu as they trailed 19-5 in the half time break.
The second half saw a different ball game for the Drua as coach Senirusi Seruvakula pointed out areas that needed to be improved.
