After conceding two losses to the Reds and Highlanders in consecutive weeks, Derenalagi said they would out to defy the habit of playing catch up.

“That was a mistake from of us just one of our weaknesses and definitely something we have worked on,” Derenalagi said.

“We have to start well in the first half.

Derenalagi said he had a humble message for his players during the captains run at the HFC Bank Stadium today said.

“Treat every game like it was your last and be humble when you wear that Drua jersey.”
