Some member of the Fiji Air­ways Fijian Drua players will play overseas after the National Rugby Championship.

This was confirmed by head coach Senirusi Seruvakula before the team flew out yesterday to play Western Force on Saturday in Perth.

“There have been a couple of agents who are interested in our players but I told them to wait. Everything will be finalised after the NRC.

“But at the moment I’m just con­centrating on Saturday’s game,” he said.

“It’s going to be high intensity rugby, we just have to be patient and build up momentum.

“Our players have been playing week in and week out and against professional players. Our guys are all local players, and it’s a good step up from last year.

“There are couple changes in the team. We hoping they will gel well out there and give us a good perfor­mance on Saturday.

“All of them been putting their hands up and been performing every week. I’m very proud of the boys, the way they have been show­casing their talent every week. “But we just need to minimise our mistakes and errors and also to be disciplined.”

Veitokani consistent

Drua’s Alivereti Veitokani is lead­ing the charge to be the NRC up­coming player for the season.

“He has been consistent and it’s been massive what he brings to the team,” Seruvakula said.

“And hopefully he will be continu­ing what he has been doing until the end of the NRC.”

Other contenders are Andrew Deegan (Western Force), Jock Campbell (Queensland Country), Archie King (Melbourne Rising), Darcy Swain (Canberra Vikings) and Jack McGregor (Western Force).

Two prize at stake: Voka

Team captain Mosese Voka is lay­ing down the challenge for the Fiji Airways Fijian Drua to beat the Western Force tomorrow.

The Yasawa native said the ma­jority of the Western Force players played in Super Rugby competi­tion.

“The boys have been doing well in the last few games and we’ll try to improve on that again this week,”he said.

“The majority of the Western Force players play Super Rugby but that doesn’t concern us.

“We will focus on the execution of our game plan. We just have to play our own and I think we will be right on Saturday.

“It’s going to be a tough game for the boys and the boys are prepared for Saturday.
