All eyes have been on Suliasi Vunivalu since his arrival at Ballymore but there's another, faster Fijian-born winger the Queensland Reds will unleash against the Western Force on Saturday. Ilaisa Droasese will make his Super Rugby AU starting debut on the wing in place of another Fijian in Filipo Daugunu, who will miss the clash for personal reasons. The year-old scored with his first touch as a late replacement in the Reds' round one defeat of the NSW Waratahs. He will partner Vunivalu in a potent wing pairing as they seek a club-record ninth consecutive win at Suncorp Stadium and a clean sweep of their domestic rivals this season. Teenage halfback Kalani Thomas could also earn his first Super Rugby minutes as Thorn continues to drip fresh talent into the list he has developed over four seasons.
