Swire Shipping Fijian Drua half-back Frank Lomani

Swire Shipping Fijian Drua half-back Frank Lomani will be taking over the kicking duties after an impressive performance in last Sunday’s 27-24 loss to the Reds in the Shop N Save Super Rugby Pacific.

According to Head Coach Mick Byrne, Lomani handled the kicking duties well in their match against the Reds, and it also did not affect his game.

Lomani collected 8 points against the Reds, converting all three tries, with two conversions from the sideline.

He also got the Drua’s first points by converting a penalty in the 7th minute of the first half.

The 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 defence against the Brumbies at 1.35pm Saturday.
