Rooster Chicken Fijiana Drua star winger Vitalina Naikore has been ruled out for the remainder of the Super W competition due to injury.

Naikore who is one of the Fijiana Drua's main attacking weapons suffered an injury in their 31-5 loss to the Waratahs last week.

Naikore will be replaced by 20-year-old Nadroga winger Unaisi Tagabale.

Tagabale is the younger sister of current Fiji Airways Fijiana 7s flyer Vani Buleki who was also part of the Fijiana Drua side that won the Super W title last year.

With Naikore out, the Fijiana Drua won't lack pace as Tagabale is a former Jasper Williams High School and Suva Grammar School sprinter and will surely add more speed into the side.

The Fijiana Drua will take on the Western Force at 7.05pm Sunday in Perth.
