Caleb Muntz returns for Fijian Drua against Highlanders


The last time playmaker Caleb Muntz took to the rugby field, it was a historic day for Fijian rugby, as the Flying Fiji side beat England for the first time at Twickenham.

Drua's side will be hoping for a piece of history of their own this weekend as they seek their first win over the Highlanders in a crucial encounter with potential consequences for their 2024 playoff dreams.

Muntz is set to make his first appearance of the season as a substitute after injuring his knee on the eve of last year's Rugby World Cup, a timely return given what is at stake for the team.

Isaiah Armstrong Ravula retains the starting number 10 shirt for the time being, playing off Simi Korovuli at the halves.

Iceman Kemo Faletini and star midfielder Iosifo Masi make up the midfield, while Ebele Momo and Salistino Ravotaumada line up on the wings. Ilaisa Droasese continues to serve as the team's fullback.

The powerful front row of John Koroeduaduwa, Captain Tevita Ekanifere and Misaki Doji will face the Highlanders front row led by Ethan De Groot.

Mesake Vocevoce and the talented Isoa Nasilasila occupy the second row while Etonia Waqa, Kitione Salawa and Elia Canakaivata have been named as the free attacking trio.
