Fijian Drua vs Moana Pasifika Predictions

Fijian Drua will be confident they can pull of a convincing win. Moana have been the whipping boys of the competition to date, so I'm backing the hosts to cover 13.5.

  • Fijian Drua have won 3 of their last 4 home matches.
  • Fijian Drua covered the -13.5 handicap in their last home head-to-head match.
  • Moana Pasifika have lost their last 12 matches.


Fijian Drua have won both head-to-head encounters with the last match ending 36-34 in their favour at Moana Pasifika.

Fijian Drua Form

The Fijians have built on last season and find themselves in tenth place with four wins from twelve matches with three of them coming from home victories.

A 30-14 home loss to the Blues preceded a 27-24 home win over the Hurricanes. They would unfortunately lose 34-14 at the Western Force next.

Their last result was a 32-18 away loss at the Waratahs. The Drua put up a good and competitive fight throughout the match and will be somewhat pleased with the performance. A last minute try by the Waratahs unfortunately took the losing bonus point away from the visitors.

Moana Pasifika Form

The New Zealand based side have struggled big time this season and have lost all twelve of their matches and unsurprisingly find themselves at the bottom of the table.

Recent results have seen a 43-33 home loss to the Rebels and a 31-30 away loss to the Blues. They would then be smashed at the Hurricanes by 71-22.

The most recent match ended in a 41-7 home loss to the Crusaders. The Crusaders are a top side and were expected to win but they exceeded the expectations by blowing Moana away in the first half. A consolation try in the second half for Moana was all they could achieve in a one-sided mauling.

I am backing the Fijian Drua to cover the handicap due to their recent strong home form coupled with Moana Pasifika’s struggles of this season.
