Moana vs Fijian Drua Predictions


Fijian Drua are favourites with a handicap of seven points. The last two games between these two have ended with one- and two-point margins, both in favour of Drua. I expect another tight battle with plenty of tries on offer.

  • Moana have lost their last 2 matches to Drua by 1 & 2 points.
  • Moana have lost 14 of their last 15 Super Rugby matches.
  • Fijian Drua have won their last 3 matches against Moana.

Head to Head


Fijian Drua have won all three previous matches against Moana. Last season Drua beat Moana 36-34 after a superb second half comeback.

Moana Form


Moana come into their third season in Super Rugby desperately hoping to avoid the wooden spoon for the third successive year. They have been competitive in the majority of their games but have failed to get enough victories.

This season began with a 35-21 away defeat to the Highlanders. They did manage to score two tries and keep the game very close for large parts, even making more carries over the 80 minutes.

Conceding 15 turnovers was however never going to help them at this level and something they will need to improve drastically ahead of this weekend.

Moana Injuries & Team News


Moana have an experienced core, but those players don’t all have the ability to play to the level they have for many years. I can see them rotating some players this weekend.

Fijian Drua Form


Fijian Drua had a superb season last time out, reaching the quarter-final of Super Rugby. They have surprised many over their three seasons in the tournament and have proven they can beat anyone on any given day.

Last week was, however, a familiar story for the Drua. They lost 34-10 in Auckland against the Blues. While there is no disgrace losing to one of the top sides, the performance of Drua was of a far higher standard.

In the end, they paid the price for not taking their opportunities and making big errors at crucial times. The one thing we can be sure of with Drua is that they will be exciting to watch.

I don’t foresee to many unforced changes for Fijian Drua this weekend.

Verdict

I am backing Moana to get within seven points of Drua this weekend. I also expect the game to see over 55.5 points in the game.
