Coach Mick Byrne will name his side this afternoon.

Byrne says the Highlanders will be completely different at home.

“We just have to focus on ourselves, last week the Blues and Highlanders were a completely different scenario we know the Highlanders will take that a bit like we did a week after playing the Western Force when you come back home you’ll be fired up so they’ll take that and probably use that for their benefit.”

The Fijian Drua face Highlanders at 2:05pm on Sunday and you can watch it live on FBC Sports.
