The Fiji Airways Drua will play their first ever National Rugby Championship match on home soil this Saturday against NSW Country Eagles.

After claiming their first ever win defeating Melbourne Rising 45-24, the Drua will aim to win its first National Rugby Championship at home.

Drua skipper John Stewart says that the boys were very happy to come away with the win, especially after a disappointing game two weeks ago.

The national side racked up seven tries with winger Apete Daveta, flyhalf Peceli Nacebe and flanker Samuela Saqiwa scoring two tries each while centre Eroni Vasiteri scored one.

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