The Senirusi Seruvakula-coached Fiji Airways Fijian Drua reps are all fired up to secure their must win game on Saturday against Queens­land Country at Lawaqa Park in Sigatoka.

It will keep their hopes alive of defending their title in the National Rugby Championship.

They were in high spirit when they arrived at Nadi International Airport last night after their sen­sational come-from-behind 40-36 win against Melbourne Rising on Saturday

This will be Drua’s last chance. If they lose, they miss the semifinal and lose the title.

Coach Seruvakula did not mince his words at Nadi.

He said: “We need to work on our mistakes from last week, we have to avoid giving away penalties be­cause the Australian team will pun­ish us. We can’t afford that.

“Now the door is open to us and we got an important match against Queensland this Saturday.

“It’s a learning curve for the boys. We have to be patient with the young guys.”
