Fijian Drua vs Reds Predictions


The Reds are in good form coming into this match while the Drua have won just once in their last five. However, there is a catch – the Drua have won seven of their last eight matches played in Fiji.

It is a tough one to call despite the respective form of the two sides. Reds are slight favourites but I am going to back Drua to continue their sublime form at home.

  • Fijian Drua have lost 4 of their last 5 matches.
  • Fijian Drua have won 7 of their last 8 matches in Fiji.
  • Reds have won 3 of their last 4 matches.

Head to Head


Reds have won two of their three matches against Fijian Drua. However, in their most recent match in 2023, Drua won the game 41-17.

Fijian Drua Form


Fijian Drua are currently in eighth place on the Super Rugby table, the final playoff spot. They are just two points clear of the Western Force with two more sides three points back.

Recent form has not been good for Drua, but they have two home games remaining along with an away game next week. To be safe they likely need to win two of their three remaining games.

Last week the Drua were horrible against the Western Force, losing the game 48-10 in Perth. They were better the week before, losing 28-20 at the Brumbies. Their only win in the last five games came against Moana.

Fijian Drua Squad & Team News


The Drua will feel they almost have to win this weekend. If they don’t, they could struggle to get back into the top eight. Expect a very strong side.

Reds Form


The Reds form has fluctuated quite a bit this season, but they are sitting pretty in fifth place. With the Rebels six points back, the Reds are not in a must-win situation. They are also seven points off fourth so that looks unachievable.

Earlier in the season the Reds had a poor run, losing three games in a row after a decent start. However, the Queensland side bounced back well, beating the Highlanders 31-0 at home before losing 41-34 away to the Blues.

That was followed by a superb 33-28 win at the Crusaders and last week the Reds beat the Rebels 26-22 at home.

Reds Squad & Team News


The Reds will want to rest key players before the playoffs, but I think that will happen next weekend against the Force. Looking at their three remaining games, they could easily win all three and make a play for fourth in the Chiefs slip up twice.

Verdict

I am backing the Fijian Drua to continue their good form at home with a win over the Reds.
