Fiji Airways Fijian Drua second five eight Cyril Reece is determined that they win today’s clash against NSW Country Eagles in Sydney, Australia.

Cyril is the older brother of All Blacks winger Sevu Reece.

“It’s a must for us to win this weekend,” he told SUNsports.

“There’s no maybe, it is a must because in the first game we drew with Brisbane City and second game we lost. We’ve been preparing well this week and we’re polishing up a few moves,” he said.

Reece said they are focused and have gone back to the drawing board in order to come out stronger against the Eagles.

“Everyone’s really looking forward to the game because it’s a must win and everybody’s been training hard.

“The coaches are really putting a lot to us during training helping us to do good this week,” he said.

“We’ve been focusing on our organisation because last week we was pretty disorganised because we were not communicating a lot when we were playing.

“People were just running here and there so this week we’ve been training on doing the pods properly.”
Cyril also wished his brother Sevu well on his preparations for the Rugby World Cup.

“I still can’t believe it that he made the World Cup squad looking forward to seeing him play next week.

“Everyone’s still shocked at home about him making it into the All Blacks squad and everyone’s looking forward to watching him. I just wish him well.”

Drua hooker and Vodafone Fijian Under-20 hooker Tevita ikanivere said training really intensified this week.

“We moved up to another level since we’ve not started the season right as we should have.

“The training sessions have become harder and we upped the momentum in order to win the game this week,” he said
He said the main points to look towards this week for the team were on their work rate, physicality and following the game plan.

“The boys are really focused as we lost our home game last week. It really hurt the boys and everybody is in the mood to really play hard.

“I’ve enjoyed the Drua camps and to be picked is an honour and I surely learned a lot of things about the basics, scrums, lineouts and other
