Western Force crossed for two tries as the Drua led 29-12 at halftime.

Our side was leading 41-24 with 12 minutes to go when the hosts staged a brave fightback to trail 41-38 with two minutes remaining.

However, the Tevita Ikanivere-captained side sealed the win with a try to prop Kaliopasi Uluilakepa who got two in the match.

The Drua will play Moana Pasifika in its Super Rugby Pacific round one match next Saturday in New Zealand.
