The Swire Shipping Fijian Drua side is focusing on what is within its control as it prepares for the much important clash against the Reds in the Shop N Save Super Rugby Pacific this Saturday.

Assistant coach Brad Harris said the team is not distracted by the pressure of losing out on a spot in the playoffs as the players are aware that if they perform their part well, things will fall in place.

“We don’t want to distract our boys from what possible outcomes might be based on the games,” Harris said.

“We are just working on getting our game right so that hopefully if other results go our way, we’ve nailed our performance and we take advantage of that.”

The Fijian Drua is in a must win situation if they are to make it to their maiden quarter-final in only their second year of competition.

The match kicks off at 4.35pm at Suva’s HFC Bank Stadium.
