Fiji Airways Drua Coach Senirusi Seruvakula says there are only seven teams in this year's National Rugby Championship and there is no bye, which means that they will be playing every week, so there is a need for the team to maintain consistency in their training and recovery.
He says this is why getting the basics right and maintaining discipline are two key focus areas for them ahead of their opening match against Melbourne Rising.
The Fijian Drua will have four home games this season.
They will take on Melbourne Rising in their first home game at 3pm at Ratu Cakobau Park next Saturday.
The Drua’s other home games will be at Churchill Park against Brisbane City on the 8th of next month, they will again play at Ratu Cakobau Park against NSW Country Eagles on the 29th of next month before taking on the Canberra Vikings at Churchill Park on October 6th.
