Drua edge Waratahs, to set up Super W finale against Reds

Defending champions Fijiana Drua pulled off a sensational upset over the weekend, defeating favourites and top-ranked NSW Waratahs 20-17 to secure their spot in the Super W Final.

The rematch of last year’s final saw the Tahs dominate the opening quarter to take a commanding 17-0 lead. However, the Drua fought back with 20 unanswered points, starting with a powerful try from Siteri Rasolea, who carried multiple defenders over the line.

Centre Vani Arei added two tries, including the match-winner, beating three defenders to secure the victory.

The Drua will defend their title against Heleina Young’s Reds squad, who secured their place in the final with a narrow 22-20 win over the Brumbies.

The Super W final is scheduled for this Saturday at the Queensland Country Bank Stadium.
