Fiji Airways Drua coach Senirusi Seruvakula says the draw against NSW Country Eagles was disappointing and the new boys are still learning.
Seruvakula adds they need to play smarter rugby as they progress.
“It was disappointing but it’s better than a loss. We need to play smarter and the players are still learning as there is a lot of new players in the team. From now on we can’t afford to lose anymore. It’s an important game next week in Lautoka against the Sydney Rays.”
The Fijian Drua could not hold onto their lead as they were held 24-all by NSW Country Eagles in round three of the NRC.
The Drua are now on 7th place on the standings with four points.
NSW Country Eagles tops the table with 10 points followed by Western Force and Canberra Vikings on 9 points.
In other matches Canberra Vikings edged Brisbane City 36-35.
Sydney defeated Queensland Country 47-26.
The Drua will meet the Sydney Rays next Saturday at 5pm in Churchill Park, Lautoka.
