Coach Mick Byrne says Ravutaumada’s statistics after three games are a testament to the hard work he has put in.

“Stino’s being going well. I think he is getting the rewards for the way he’s been training. He’s grown as a player over the last two years and I think going away with the Flying Fijians to the Rugby World Cup gave him a taste of the next level. He has certainly come back wanting to improve each week and I’m pleased with how he’s going like how I’m happy with how a lot of the players are going.”

Byrne says Ravutaumada is flourishing in the one-on-one situations against defenders and his recent performances have made him a key player in the squad.

The Drua will travel to New Zealand this week to face the Chiefs on Saturday at 6.30pm in Hamilton.
