Rooster Chicken Fijiana Drua head coach Se­nirusi Seruvakula has made eight changes to his starting line-up for the Brumbies clash in their Super W showdown, tomorrow.

Seruvakula has opted to rest some of his key players this weekend and give game time to those who have missed a few matches earlier in the com­petition.

“That is exactly what I’m doing this week so that I can rotate the players and give a break to those who need it.

“All the players in the Fijiana squad have already played in the Super W and are aware of our expec­tation on the game day.”

Keleni Marawa comes in at hooker and will front up in the scrums with skipper Bitila Tawake and Joma Rubuti. Torika Semo will partner with Mer­evesi Ofakimalino at locks.

Unaisi Biau and Akosita Ravato make it into the run-on team as flankers while hard-hitting Serei­ma Leweniqila moves to number 8.

In the backs, Seruvakula has maintained the halves combination of Rusila Tamoi and Mere­walesi Rokouono.

Vani Arei will pair up with Roela Radiniyavuni in the midfield while Younis Bese starts on the wing and Timaima Ravisa at full-back.

The match kicks off at 7.15pm at the Suncorp Sta­dium in Brisbane, Australia.
