Byrne aware of Hurricanes physical game

Swire Shipping Fijian Drua Head Coach Mick Byrne knows how physical the Hurricanes can be when they play Drua in round 12 of the Super Rugby Pacific this weekend.  
 
Byrne said Hurricanes will play more physical rugby and would want to make a comeback in the competition following their 42-25 defeat to the Brumbies last week.
 
"We know this week the Hurricanes will bring a fast line, speed, defensive game so we have to be mindful of that."
 
"We have to be conscious that at times they will have defenders at our line but we are preparing for the very physical game this week."
 
"We are in Hurricanes territory and we are expecting them to really bounce back hard. The physicality which we want to bring and they will bring this week will also be tough."
 
The match kicks off at 3.35pm at the Wellington Regional Stadium on Sunday.
