Swire Shipping Fijian Drua captain, Nemani Nagusa, believes the main aspect of their Super Rugby clash against the Chiefs is to stay switched on all the time.

“We must never switch off,” the burly No.8 said.

A sell-out crowd is expected in today’s clash at Churchill Park, Lautoka.

Nagusa said it’s a big challenge for them but they need to play according to their game plan and not to the crowd.

“The whole workweek we were playing against this initial theme, you can switch off at any time. So the big lesson for us is to always switch on when the ball is in play and never switch off until the referee blows the whistle,” he said.

Nagusa said it has been a long season and there has been improvements.

“A lot of improvement, physically and mentally. We’ve made a good start. I think we will just get better from here onwards. A lot of learnings for these young boys. The team just keeps learning and keeps moving forward.”

He added the players know what the importance of this match.

“It means a lot especially playing our last game in front of our home crowd.”

The match kicks-off at 3pm.
