Swire Shipping Fijian Drua centre Iosefo Masi currently tops the Shop N Save Super Rugby Pacific Defenders Beaten statistics heading into this weekend’s round 14 of this competition.

The Wairiki, Taveuni man has beaten 62 defenders so far this season.

The 26-year-old has been a regular starter in the number 13 jersey and has been instrumental in setting up tries and creating holes in the defence with his ball-carrying ability.

Masi has been named to start again this weekend against the Highlanders and will be looking to put on a show in Dunedin to help his side secure a much-needed win to keep their playoff hopes alive.

Following him in the statistics is his Drua teammate from Taveuni and winger, Selestino Ravutaumada with 53 defenders beaten.

The Drua will take on the Highlanders at 2.05pm this Sunday at the Forsyth Barr Stadium.

In other matches this week, the Chiefs play the Hurricanes at 7.05pm tomorrow, the Brumbies host the Rebels at 9.35pm tomorrow, Moana Pasifika takes on the Waratahs at 4.35pm Saturday, the Crusaders play the Blues at 7.05pm Saturday, and the Reds meet the Force at 9.35pm Saturday.
