The Rooster Chicken Fijian Drua may miss three key players in their Super Rugby Women’s final against Waratahs this weekend.

Head coach, Mosese Rauluni says that prop Ana Korovata will be out due to the number of yellow cards she copped while Vika Matarugu and Merewai Cumu are still recovering from injuries.

Rauluni says they’ll be monitoring these two players as they gear up for the grand final.

“We’ve lost Ana Korovata through three yellow cards so she’s automatic out one week and for Vika we’re still seeing her ankle that she injured in Melbourne. So hopefully going forward she might be able to play this weekend. But the other one is Merewai Cumu – the centre. Obviously with her concussion, she was knocked knocked out for ten minutes.”

Rauluni is hopeful these two players recover by Thursday for the big outing on Sunday.

The former national skipper is confident other players can fill the big shoes and shine against the Tahs.
