The Fijians play Highlanders this weekend with the Otago-based side winning each of the previous two meetings, conceding exactly 24 points in each game.

One of the key matchups will be between inside centres Kemu Valetini and Sam Gilbert.

The two inside centres come in with pressure on their shoulders in a must-win game for both sides.

Both players possess two of the sharpest boots in the game, which will be crucial in what is expected to be a thriller.

The Highlanders host Drua at 2:05pm on Sunday.
