The Swire Shipping Fijian Drua is expecting a tough and physical encounter when they face the Highlanders in Dunedin this week in Round 5 of the Shop N Save Super Rugby Pacific.

Coach Mick Byrne says the Highlanders will have some confidence coming out of their first victory last weekend, and they will also be getting back some players from injuries.

He says the Drua will continue with their preparation and take them head-on this Saturday.

The Fijian Drua will meet the Highlanders at 3.35pm Saturday.

In other matches, the Crusaders will face the Brumbies at 6.05pm Friday, the Waratahs will meet the Chiefs at 8.35pm Friday, Moana Pasifika will meet the Hurricanes at 6.05pm Saturday, the Rebels will play the Reds at 8.35pm Saturday, and the Blues will face the Western Force at 2.35pm Sunday.

Meanwhile, the Rooster Chicken Fijiana Drua will begin their Super W campaign against the Brumbies at 1.35pm Saturday at Prince Charles Park, Nadi.
