Tawake reinforces Drua semis assault

The Rooster Chicken Fijian Drua women have welcomed back former skipper Bitila Tawake to their squad as they prepare for the Super Rugby Women’s semifinal against Western Force this Friday in Suva.

Tawake is coming off a stint with the Chiefs in the Super Rugby Aupuki competition in New Zealand, where her team reached the finals but fell short against the Blues last weekend.

Immediately following her season in New Zealand, Tawake has been reintegrated into the Drua squad, primarily to strengthen the front row as they prepare for a crucial matchup against the Western Force in Suva.

Head Coach Mosese Rauluni shared his satisfaction with Tawake’s return.

“It’s great to have Bitila back. She has always been an important part of the Drua and we’ve constantly been in touch.”

“She’ll get on splendidly with the rest of the squad, all of whom know her well already. Bitila comes to us match fit and battle hardened and will be a great asset to draw on as we prepare to take on the Western Force,” said the coach.
