Swire Shipping Fijian Drua fly-half Caleb Muntz is confident that rookies Isaiah Armstrong-Ravula and Isikeli Rabitu will perform well in their debut appearance tomorrow against the Blues.

Muntz, who is still recovering from knee surgery after succumbing to injury prior to the start of the 2023 Rugby World Cup, says Armstrong-Ravula and Rabitu have grown in strides since joining the Drua franchise late last year and can sprout a few surprises on the field.

“We’ve got a new attacking structure that we’re running and they look really comfortable. I think the ball is going through their hands a lot more and they feel really comfortable if they take the line and get the ball in their hands a lot more.”
