About four Fiji Airways Drua tries in round two of the National Rugby Championship is expected to be in the Try of the Round list this week.

After an outstanding display of running rugby the Drua’s best form of attack is surely counter‑attack.

For highlight replays alone, flyhalf Peceli Nacebe’s second try might be the pick for best try of Round 2.

Nacebe picked the loose ball from their 22 meter line after the Rising had broken out from their own half themselves.

He then went on a swerving run to get around and through the arriving Rising defenders, before finding himself in space and putting his foot down to run 80 metres.

The Drua’s are currently sitting in third place in the overall points table with five points while Nacebe dominated the total points, metres gained and total tries scored statistic.

The Nadroga flyhalf is leading the total points with 32, leading the total tries scored with 4 tries and has the most meters gained with 332 meters.
