Speight draws inspiration from recent floods

April 5, 2012 12:59 am

Fiji-born ACT Brumbies winger, Henry Speight will be using the recent flash flooding in Fiji as motivation to perform well in their Super Rugby clash against the Queensland Reds on Friday night.

Speight told overseas media, it was hard waiting to hear if his family was safe as water levels rose quickly at their Lautoka home.

In the end, upon hearing of their safety on Sunday, the 24-year-old has decided to draw inspiration from his family to perform well on Friday.

His motivation comes from a desire to give his family in Lautoka an escape from reality, even it is, for just 80 minutes.

Speight retains his spot in the wing in a re-shuffled Brumbies side to take on the Reds.

Although copping a knee injury against the Sharks last week, he returned to training on Tuesday and is confident he will not be hampered.

Meanwhile, fellow Fijian, Tevita Kuridrani has been named on the Brumbies bench.

The team can confirm its place at the top of the Australian conference if it topples the out-of-form Reds.
