Drua debutants impress Byrne

Fijian Drua Coach Mick Byrne is impressed with the performance of winger Eroni Sau and flyhalf Kemu Valetini who made their debut in the team’s 25-24 win over the Crusaders at Churchill Park in Lautoka on Saturday.

Sau scored a try while Valetini booted the match-winning penalty for the Swire Shipping sponsored Drua in their first Shop N Save home match.

“They were awesome. Eroni hasn’t played for six months,” Byrne told FijiLive. 

“Kemu can’t do much more like young Dan (Taniela Rakuro) when he came on a couple of weeks ago and scored the match-winning try.”

“You can’t ask for much more than some of the best you can contribute to a victory. He came on and got us in the right part of the park there at the end and put the points on the board. It’s great for him in his debut to be able to put the match-winning points on the board.”

Drua will take on the Queensland Reds in their next match on Sunday.
