Decision making under pressure critical for Fiji Drua


Leadership plays the most critical role in any rugby team, especially for the Swire Shipping Fijian Drua.

These are the words of Flying Fijians Head Coach Vern Cotter when asked about the team’s progression in Super Rugby Pacific.

Cotter said the Drua has improved over five games but there are bits and pieces that still need work.

He said the Drua is a dangerous team and frighten oppositions when it has possession.

“It comes down to how you develop as a team mentally, physically and how leadership has major roles within the team at critical times and this is what we need to develop within the game at a professional level”

Cotter said Fiji is playing good teams that will test then thus decision making and leadership are critical.

He said the Drua continues to bring in enthusiasm into the competition and a style of rugby that no one has seen in Super Rugby.

Fijian Drua takes on Melbourne Rebels at 8.45 pm on Friday.
