“It was unreal today, it was epic,” said Drua captain Tevita Ikanivere.
“The boys came out in the second half firing and we did the job, we got the win. We had the belief we could do it and we came and defeated a great Crusaders team.
“And what better way to do it than in front of our home crowd.”
Crusaders captain Scott Barrett said: “I guess that’s not what we wanted, but we got what we expected, that’s a tough Drua side playing at home.
“We saw how dangerous they were, they capitalised with their skill, running play. Congratulations to the Drua on their win.”
