There are expectations from our fans to win at home but we have internal expectations as well.

These were the words of Swire Shipping Fijian Drua coach Mick Byrne as they turn their focus to their Shop N Save Super Rugby Pacific clash against Moana Pasifika this Saturday.

Byrne says the boys put up a good performance last week even though they lost and they are desperate to perform well again this week in front of their home fans.

The Fijian Drua are currently sitting in 10th place in the overall Super Rugby Pacific table with 17 points and will be hunting for a bonus point victory this weekend to keep their hopes of making the playoffs alive.

The Fijian Drua versus the Moana Pasifika game will kick off at 2.05pm in Lautoka.

In other matches this week, the Highlanders will play the Reds at 7.05pm Friday, the Rebels will take on the Force at 9.35pm Friday, the Crusaders will host the Waratahs at 4.35pm Saturday, the Blues will play the Waratahs at 7.05pm Saturday while the Brumbies will take on the Chiefs at 9.35pm Saturday.
