Lomani is an awesome leader, says Byrne

Swire Shipping Fijian Drua Head Coach Mick Byrne has praised scrumhalf Frank Lomani for achieving the milestone of playing 50 Super Rugby matches.

Lomani played his 50th match yesterday and helped the Drua beat Western Force 31-13 at Churchill Park.

He was instrumental and set up the second try of the match with a quick tap and sent Selesitino Ravutaumada in the clear to score.

The achievement was capped off with the Nukubalavu native from Savusavu also walking away with the Player of the Match award.

 “Frank is one the key players in the side. His work rate is high and shows a lot of maturity. He is  an awesome leader on and off the field,” said Byrne.

“He guides the younger players and you see his abilities in the way he plays at every game.” “

Byrne said to have him run out onto the field with his child was truly special for the whole team and they are really proud of Lomani.

“He has much more to offer to the team and we are happy to have a player of such caliber in the Drua set up.”
