The Swire Shipping Fijian Drua will be giving their all when they take on the Queensland Reds in their do-or-die Shop N Save Super Rugby Pacific clash tomorrow.

With their hopes of making history and qualifying for the Super Rugby Pacific playoffs on the line, the Fijian Drua will not want to let their fans down when the dust settles at the HFC Bank Stadium.

Their anticipation doesn’t end there as they will also be hoping for other results in the competition tonight and tomorrow to help boost their chances of qualifying for the quarter-finals.

Meanwhile, the Reds will be looking to spoil the Drua’s party after coach Brad Thorn named a strong side that includes four players with links to Fiji making it into the starting lineup.

Fiji Water Flying Fijian Peni Ravai will start at loosehead prop for the Queenslanders while former RKS and Fiji under-20 player Serupepeli Uru will start at lock.

Wallabies duo Filipo Daugunu and Suliasi Vunivalu will pair up on the wings.

Daugunu will be up against the Drua sledgehammer, Eroni Sau while Vunivalu will go up against Kalaveti Ravouvou.

The Fijian Drua will take on the Reds at 4.35pm.

The gates at the HFC Bank Stadium will open at 1.35pm.

You can buy your tickets from any Jack’s of Fiji outlet, Fiji Sports Council offices, or online at drua.flicket.io

Looking at the other games this week - the Blues will play the Highlanders at 7.05 tonight, the Brumbies meet the Rebels at 9.35 tonight, the Hurricanes host the Crusaders at 7.05pm tomorrow, the Waratahs play Moana Pasifika at 9.35pm tomorrow and the Western Force host the Chiefs at 12am Sunday.
