Fijian Drua make changes for Rising clash

The Fijian Drua have made a number of changes for their second clash of the National Rugby Championship against Melbourne Rising today.

Coach Senirusi Seruvakula has named Nadroga’s Ratunaisa Nauma in the front row in place of suspended Samuela Suguturaga who has been handed a 20 week ban for biting the ear of an opponent last week.

Former Fiji 7s rep Samu Saqiwa starts ahead of Vasikali Mudu on the blindside flank and in two positional changes, Captain John Stewart moves from Centre to Fullback while sensational Peceli Nacebe will move from Fullback to his natural fly-half position, relegating Kini Douglas to the bench.

The Fiji Airways sponsored Drua will take on Melbourne Rising at 5pm (Fiji Time).

Fijian Drua starting team (1-15)- Joeli Veitayaki, Ratunaisa Nauma, Kalivati Tawake, Peni Naulago, Apisai Tauyavuca, Samu Saqiwa, Mosese Voka, Peni Raidre, Frank Lomani, Peceli Nacebe, Apete Daveta, Eroni Vasiteri, Ifereimi Tovilevu, Eroni Sau, John Stewart.

Reserves- Osea Naganilau, Eroni Mawi, Mosese Ducivaki, Sakiusa Nadruku, Filimoni Seru, Seru Cavuilati, Kini Douglas, Cyril Reece.
