Swire Shipping Fijian Drua flyhalf Teti Tela could potentially collect 100 points this week if he is given a chance whether it be scoring a try, kicking a conversion or converting a penalty goal when they meet the Highlanders in Round 5 of the Shop N Save Super Rugby Pacific.
Tela headed into last week’s clash against the Reds needing only 1 point to become the first Fijian Drua player to score 100 points.
Fans were anticipating Tela’s achievement to have happened last week, but it had to be put on hold as kicking duties were handed to halfback Frank Lomani.
When asked by fijivillage News why Tela was not given the kicking duties last week, Head coach Mick Byrne says Tela will get his chance as the competition goes on but Lomani was impressive with his kicking execution.
He says Tela will continue to play a major role in the team as a leader on the field.
The Fijian Drua will take on the Highlanders at 3.35pm Saturday.
In other games this weekend, the Crusaders will take on the Brumbies at 6.05pm Friday, the Waratahs play the Chiefs at 8.35pm Friday, Moana Pasifika takes on the Hurricanes at 6.05pm Saturday, the Rebels play the Reds at 8.35pm Saturday while the Blues play the Force at 2.35pm Sunday.
