Evening game will favour Hurricanes: Ikanivere

Swire Shipping Fijian Drua captain Tevita Ikanivere says the cooler evening conditions of a night game could turn out to be an advantage for the Hurricanes, as they won’t have to contend with the usual heat.

Prior to today’s game, the Hurricanes have been training specifically to cope with Fiji’s heat to ensure it doesn’t impact their game play and performance.

However, addressing concerns often raised by visiting teams about Fiji’s challenging weather; Ikanivere mentioned the advantage of the evening schedule.

“It’s a night game so there will be no heat, good on them,” suggesting that the typical daytime heat which can be a factor in Fiji, will not be an issue.

This shift is expected to present a unique set of conditions for both teams, potentially leveling the playing field.

“The Hurricanes were dominant against the Chiefs last week, but we have done our preparations accordingly, we look forward to meeting them head-on,” Ikanivere stated.

The Round 9 clash between the Drua and the Hurricanes will kick off at 7.05pm.
