The Fiji Airways Drua side has slipped to second spot on the National Rugby Championship ladder after the 52-22 loss to Queensland Country last Saturday.

After leading the competition for the first two weeks, the Fiji Drua was humiliated by the defending champions in Australia.

Discipline is a major factor the Drua will be looking to improve on having so far conceding 39 penalties(the most by any team) and two yellow cards(second most) in the first two rounds.

Meanwhile, Sydney Rays will be playing two matches this weekend.

They play NSW Country on Friday before playing the Drua on Sunday.

The Fiji Drua play Sydney Rays at 5pm on Sunday.
