Fijian players in the Reds squad, Peni Ravai, Serupepeli Uru, Filipo Daugunu and Suliasi Vunivalu have all been named in Brad Thorn’s staring 15 to take on the Swire Shipping Fijian Drua at the HFC Bank Stadium in Suva today.

“We expect a tough game,” said Daugunu who will start at left wing for the Reds.

“They have a good team this year and the crowd is going to be electric so it will be a tough battle for us as we are both fighting for a spot in the Super Rugby finals.”

Daugunu urges fans to come out in numbers as his family will be out to cheer them on against the home team.

“Definitely we’ll have family coming out and cheering for us tomorrow (today),” he said. “Hopefully we give a good performance for not only them but our fans in Australia as well.”
