For the first time ever, the top two spots in the National Rugby Championship will be decided in the last two rounds.

After round six, the Fiji Airways Drua and the Canberra Vikings sit on top of the NRC table while Queensland Country who is likely to claim first spot this week is currently sitting in third place.

Queensland Country sit one point behind the top two, but importantly, still have a game in hand while the teams above both have their bye to come.

While the Vikings and Drua can finish with a maximum of 30 competition points, Country can still finish on 34 points if they win their last three matches which include their game against the Drua next Saturday.

Drua captain John Stewart believes they bounced back perfectly after their disappointing loss to Canberra.

The Drua will just need to win their last two games to finish in the top two and host a semifinal.

The Drua will take on the Queensland Country at 2pm next Saturday at the Churchill Park in Lautoka.

They will then host the Sydney Rays at 4pm on the 28th of this month at the ANZ Stadium.
