As the first-ever Super Rugby Women’s knockout game is set to be held in Suva today, the Rooster Chicken Fijian Drua Women will be looking to give something back to their home fans and keep their winning record intact over the Western Force this afternoon.

They will also want to prevent being under pressure knowing they are coming into this game as defending champions and also knowing that the visitors will want to turn the tables around this time.

Earlier this week, coach Mosese Rauluni indicated that they will need to improve on their defence and complete tackles if they need to win this semi final match up.

The Drua have been boosted by the presence of former captain Bitila Tawake who joined the team earlier this week from the Chiefs Manawa that lost to the Blues in the Super Rugby Aupuki final last week.

Tawake forced her way straight into the match day 23 squad and will be coming off the bench.

The Drua Women will take on the Force at 4.35pm today followed by the Swire Shipping Fijian Drua Men’s game against the Hurricanes that will kick off at 7.05 tonight.

Both games will be at the HFC Bank Stadium in Suva.

The ticket prices are as follows:

Drua experience - $425 Platinum grandstand - $180 Gold grandstand - $120 Silver grandstand - $50-$100 Bronze grandstand - $30-$75 Concrete embankment - $20-$40 Seawall grass - $20-$25 Laucala Bay grass - $20-$25
