Swire Shipping Fijian Drua second rower Isoa Nasilasila will be running out for his 27th Shop N Save Super Rugby Pacific game tomorrow night when the Drua takes on defending champions the Crusaders in Christchurch.

The 23-year-old currently has the most appearances in the Fijian Drua colors and has been a constant starter for the Drua this season without showing any sign of slowing down.

Nasilasila will pair up with Te Ahiwaru Cirikidaveta in the second row as they will come up against the experienced locks pairs of Scott Barret and Quinten Strange for the Crusaders.

Meanwhile, veteran halfback Frank Lomani will be making his 45th Super Rugby Pacific appearance tomorrow.

The 27-year-old started his Super Rugby Pacific career with the Melbourne Rebels back in 2020 making a total of 25 appearances for them.

Both players have also been named into the Fiji Water Flying Fijians 45-member extended squad to prepare for the upcoming July tests and pre-Rugby World Cup matches in August.

The Fijian Drua will take on the Crusaders at 7.05pm tomorrow.

In other quarter finals matches, the Blues will host the Waratahs at 7.35pm tonight, the Chiefs will take on the Reds at 4.35pm tomorrow and the Brumbies will play the Hurricanes at 9.35pm tomorrow.
