Rooster Chicken Fijiana Drua captain Bitila Tawake says there was no excuse in their failure to score in the second half in the side’s 45-17 win against Western Force on Saturday at Leichhaird Oval, Sydney.

The match was Round Three of the Super W competition of which the Fijiana side are making their debut.

The Fijiana Drua scored their seven tries in the first spell of the match while the Force scored their three in the second half.

Asked if it was because of the wet conditions in Leichardt Oval, Tawake said: “Not really, really there is no excuse – we came here to play. “

Tawake was switched to the front row in the last two games against Western Force and Queensland after she played at Number 8 in the first game.

She also acknowledged the presence of fans on the game day as well as the supporters back in Fiji.

It will be the battle of the top two as the Fijiana Drua face the NSW Waratahs on Saturday,

NSW Waratahs are defending champions and they too are undefeated so far.

Waratahs had thrashed Rebels Women 67-10 in last’s week game and are now leading the points table
