Updated: 6:35am – The Fiji Airways Drua has made three changes to their starting line up to take on Queensland Country in the National Rugby Championship semifinal this Sunday.
Vesi Rarawa will make his first start at hooker after an impressive debut last week while Kalivati Tawake is back from injury and will start at tighthead prop.
The only change in the backline is halfback Seru Cavuilati who will combine with Kini Douglas.

The forwards are Eroni Mawi, Rarawa, Tawake, Mataiasi Ucutabua, Peni Naulago, Samu Saqiwa, Vasikali Mudu and Peni Raidre.
The backline include Cavuilati, Douglas, Apete Daveta, Cyril Reece, captain John Stewart at outside centre, Eroni Sau and Apisalome Waqatabu at fullback.
The reserves include Semi Keli, Osea Na-ganilau, Samu Newa, Filimoni Seru, Sakiusa Nadruku, Sakiusa Gavidi, Meli Nakarawa and Ifereimi Tovilevu.
The Drua will take on Queensland Country at 5pm Sunday while the Canberra Vikings will face Perth Spirit at 9pm Saturday.
