John Stewart believes positive criticism will make the Fiji Airways Drua side stronger.

The team captain welcomes media report on  their chances against Queensland Country in the semifinal of the Australian National Rugby Championship in Toowoomba tomorrow.

NRC players and coaches have written off the Fiji Airways Drua side and are predicting a Canberra Vikings- Queensland Country final.

The Vikings play defending champions Perth Spirit today.

“They have written us off from reaching final but we take that as positive criticism which will make us stronger,” Stewart said at Nausori International Airport yesterday.

“Queensland Country is not an easy side and we need to work on our discipline and defence. Those were the key areas that let us down in the 17-24 loss at Lautoka last month.”

Stewart also stressed they cannot afford to play catch-up rugby.

“We have learnt our lesson during our final game against Sydney Rays. We can’t afford to play catch-up rugby and this has been emphasised during training this week. We have to start with a bang and keep on the  momentum,” he said.

 

Do Fiji Proud: Flying Fijians

The Fiji Airways Flying Fijians wished the team well from France yesterday.

“On behalf of the Flying Fijians team we want to wish our brothers the best in this Sunday’s NRC semi-final,”veteran centre Vereniki Goneva said.

“Go out there and do us and our nation proud.”
