The Swire Shipping Fijian Drua will be out to claim their first-ever away game win against the Melbourne Rebels when the two sides face off in round 7 of the Shop N Save Super Rugby Pacific competition tonight in Melbourne.

The Drua has never beaten the Rebels on their home ground ever since joining the competition in 2022 and they will look to change that tonight.

So far, the Drua has secured three home wins this season, the latest was their comfortable 31-13 win over the Force last week in Lautoka which they will be looking to back up tonight.

The Rebels on the other hand will also want to follow up on their 27-21 away win over the Waratahs last weekend and defend their home turf against the Drua.

They have named a very strong lineup as well including 3 players with Fijian links knowing the Drua will be coming in with a lot of threats.

The Drua will take on the Rebels at 8.35pm tonight in Melbourne.

In other games this weekend, the Blues play the Force at 6.05 tonight, the Chiefs face Moana Pasifika at 6.05pm tomorrow while the Brumbies meet the Waratahs at 8.35pm tomorrow.

Meanwhile, the Rooster Chicken Fijian Drua Women will play the Brumbies Women at 6.05pm tomorrow in round 4 of the Super W competition.

In other Super W matches, the Rebels will play the Reds at 6.05 tonight and the Force will play the Waratahs at 7.05pm tomorrow.
