Start strong, be patient and grind them down.
That is the instruction from head coach Senirusi Seruvakula to the Fiji Airways Drua team set to play Canberra Vikings at Churchill Park this Saturday.
Seruvakula has made minimal changes to the 23-man squad, which defeated NSW Country in Suva last week, with Peni Naulago returning to the second row and Cyril Reece into the centres.
Young Flying Fijian Veremalua Vugakoto comes back into the squad at 16 and Enele Malele resumes his place after overcoming an ankle injury.
“We need to start well this weekend against Canberra,” Vugakoto said.
“Be physical and hard in our defence and place them under pressure through grinding away at them.”
The Fiji Airways Drua play Canberra Vikings at Churchill Park in Lautoka this Saturday, October 6, 2018.
