SECOND placed Fiji Airways Drua targets another win this weekend in its National Rugby Championship round four match against the seventh placed Sydney Rays at Lennox Heads, NSW, Australia on Sunday.

Head coach Senirusi Seruvakula says the lessons learnt from last weekend will be the driving force towards their next match in the 2018 National Rugby Championship.

“We did our review and are working on mistakes from last week’s game,” Seruvakula said.

“A lot of work has been done over the past couple of days. This afternoon (yesterday) we will work on clarity and our game pattern.

We will work on the stages we feel went wrong and polish it up. But it’s only our third game and our first loss and we need to come down to earth again and work hard for the next game on Sunday against Sydney Rays”.

The Drua have a six-day turnaround before their next match, whereas the Sydney Rays will take on New South Wales Country Eagles today before playing the Drua on Sunday.

“It is a big advantage for us that the Sydney Rays will play two games this week and I don’t believe there will be a lot of changes for them and the way they want to play when they play us but, we need to look at ourselves first rather than concentrate on Sydney Rays,” Seruvakula said from Sydney yesterday.

“We need to look at how we want to play, defend and attack.”

The Fiji Drua will be looking to maintain its current position in the rankings and remain in the top two.

“We need a win to keep us in the top two before going back home to play New South Wales Country Eagles and the Canberra Vikings.”
