Samu Saqiwa breaks Melbourne Rising defence

Four Fiji Airways Drua players were named in the National Rugby Championships Round 2 team of the week.

This comes off the back of a dominating 45-24 win by the Drua over Melbourne Rising in Round 2.

Forwards Joeli Veitayaki and Samu Saqiwa as well as backs Peceli Nacebe and Apete Daveta were named in the team of the week.

Joeli Veitayaki has been the corner stone of a strong Drua scrum and scrummaged well against Wallaby Toby Smith whilst Samu Saqiwa  was everywhere he was needed throughout the match and his linking play was a particular strength and a vital part of his team’s performance.

Paceli Nacebe has been outstanding for the Drua showcasing his skills and pace which has also caught the attention of national sevens coach, Gareth Baber while Apete Daveta’s elusiveness and finishing abilities out wide proved too much for the Rising defence.

The Drua will play NSW Country Eagles at 3pm Saturday at Lawaqa Park and you can catch the live commentary of this match on our sister station Viti FM on 92.2FM.
