Your Drua Fan Man Of The Match!

Halfback Peni Matawalu has taken out the Round 3 Fan Player of the Match after his sterling performance in the match against the Rebels last Friday. Matawalu was inspirational throughout the match, with fans lauding his quick clearances and energetic play.

His quick thinking early in the second half with a tap off a penalty set up a try for centre Apisalome Vota. He was also recognised for linking well with flyhalves Caleb Muntz and Teti Tela in that historic first ever victory for the Swire Shipping Fijian Drua in Super Rugby Pacific.

25-year-old Matawalu has been a Drua original, and has come up through the representation ranks in Fiji, with the Fiji U20s, The Fijian Warriors, the NRC Drua and the Flying Fijians. Find out more fun facts about ‘Tu-Ben’ here.
