“I think it’s very important, we set out at the start of the year to win away games. We haven’t done that yet. If we are going to grow as a team and take this team to the final and that’s where we want to be – in the finals! We got to have away wins and we have got another chance to do it on Friday night so it’s really important for us.”

He adds that plans to secure away victories have been in place from the outset, highlighting the significance of this week’s match for both the team and their supporters and families.

The Fijian Drua take on the Melbourne Rebels at 8:35pm.
