PLAYER
OF THE
match

Meli Derenalagi

For the second straight game Meli stood up and lead with purpose. He was outstanding in attack and defence and this time was also exceptional in the lineout.
He even had a lineout steal to his name.
He is our man of the match as he was in their last match.

other top performers

Kitione Taliga

One would forget that Kitione was starting at fullback for the first time at Super Rugby level.
He played like a 10 year veteran. Great decision making, made big gains and his kickoffs were pinpoint giving the Drua several opportunities to disrupt the Blues and win back possession.

Te Ahiwaru Cirikidaveta

Another busy night for the big number 8 who churned out the most tackles for the Drua and carried the ball with extra vigour powering over defenders and always there when needed.
