Male names squad for all important match
Rooster Chicken Fijiana Drua Head Coach Inoke Male has named a strong squad to face the Queensland Reds tomorrow in their last Super W round match.
Impact player Siteri Rasolea who has been out for a while due to injury makes a return to guide the front row with Skipper Bitila Tawake and Litia Marama at hooker.
Coach Male said this match is a must-win match if they are to qualify for the semi-finals.
He said,” It was disappointing that we lost the last two matches but we have worked hard and these girls are aware of the challenge we have tomorrow.”
Asinate Serevi returns at lock and will pair up with Mereoni Nakesa.
Doreen Narokete has also been cleared off injury, she left the field against Waratahs in Round three and is back to make her mark and starts with Sulita Waisega at flanks.
Karalaini Naisewa resumes to do her usual best at number eight.
Setaita Railumu continues at half-back and will partner with Ani Mei at fly-half.
With a good exposure coming off the bench last week, Unaisi Tagabale starts at wing together with Laisani Moceisawana.
Merewai Cumu stars at inside centre, with Vani Arei on the outside. Lavenia Tina will beat fullback.
On the bench, Makereta Tunidau, Joma Rubuti and Anasimeci Korovata will cover for the front row.
Merevesi Ofakimalino and Jade Coates will bring in the impact at locks. Livia Naidei, Wainikiti Vosadrau and Adita Milinia are also expected to produce fireworks from the bench.
The Fijiana Drua face Queensland Reds at 3.05pm tomorrow.
