Seruvakula rings the changes for Fijiana Drua-Brumbies clash

Former Fiji sprinter Younis Bese gets her first start for the Fijian Drua this week, starting on the wing, in one of the changes head coach Senirusi Seruvakula has made the Fijiana Super W side’s final round-robin game against the Brumbies tomorrow.

Keleni Marawa starts at hooker and will front up in the scrums with skipper Bitila Tawake and Joma Rubuti. Torika Semo also starts and will partner with Merevesi Ofakimalino at locks. Adi Unaisi Biau and Akosita Ravato make it into the run-on team as flankers while hard-hitting Sereima Leweniqila moves to number 8.

In the back, Seruvakula has maintained the halves combination of Rusila Tamoi and Merewalesi Rokouono. Vani Arei will pair up with Roela Radiniyavuni in the midfield while Timaima Ravisa comes in at the fullback’s position.

“We want to win and it comes with hard work and that’s the focus this week,” Seruvakula said.

The Fijiana Drua vs Brumbies game kicks off at 7.15 at Brisbane’s Suncorp Stadium.
