Swire Shipping Fijian Drua second- five eighth Kalaveti Ravouvou is the man tasked to stop powerful centre Quinn Tupaea when they face the Chiefs at Lautoka’s Churchill Park, tomorrow.

Tupaea, who also was named at second five-eight for the Chiefs has been in devastating form during the Super Rugby Pacific competition. He scored three tries in the Chiefs 54-21 win over the Force last weekend.

Tupaea, who has played 7 Test matches for the All Blacks, was playing at wing to cover for injured players during the early part of the competition before being pushed back to his position.

“He’s a midfielder; he’s an All Blacks 12,” said Chiefs head coach Clayton McMillan.

“So we want to get him back in there.”

Ravouvou, has been one of Drua’s standout players during Super Rugby and is keen to take on the challenge.

Arriving into the country last Saturday night, Ravouvou said, he wanted to make the starting line-up and play to his best in their final Super Rugby match of the season.
