Every game is important, says Lomani

Swire Shipping Fijian Drua halfback Frank Lomani says despite the home game advantage against the Highlanders this weekend, every Super Rugby game is just as important.

Lomani who started off the bench during the thriller 35-18 defeat to the Blues, returns to the starting line-up this weekend in the number nine jersey.

“Every game is important to us,” Lomani told FijiLive.

“We don’t take any game lightly, we know the New Zealand teams are more stronger and more challenging than the Australian franchise teams, but a win for us this week is going to be a bonus.

The shot caller from Nukubalavu Village in Vanualevu said the players were well aware of the pressure ahead playing in front of a home crowd.

“We are working really hard to get that second win, not only on the field but off the field as well and utilizing our resources to the best of our ability.”

Lomani will also have a big task tomorrow squaring off against his opposite number in All Blacks and Highlanders scrumhalf Aaron Smith.

The match kicks off at 4.35pm at the ANZ Stadium.
