Swire Shipping Fijian Drua captain Tevita Ikanivere has shared strategies to contain Highlanders winger and fellow Fijian Timoci Tavatavanawai in this afternoon’s Round 14 match of the Shop N Save Super Rugby Pacific.

He says that the backline and midfield players have focused on perfecting their tackles, knowing that this is where Tavatavanawai excels.

“He’s a good player and strong too, he played for the Moana and I know he is going to be playing against us for the Highlanders and we look to chop him using tackle techniques, backline and midfield players have been working very hard on that this week.”
