The Fijian Drua development side is expecting a tough outing at the Super Rugby Under-20 competition, which kicks-off this weekend.

Coach Apisai Sailada says some players have been taking light training sessions this week after picking up niggling injuries from their triumphant Oceania Under-20 Rugby Championship campaign last week.

Sailada says the team know they will be up for a bruising encounter in the Super Rugby Under-20, which he adds is a step-up from the Oceania Championship.
