The Swire Shipping Fijian Drua have announced the signing of France-based Flying Fijians winger Eroni Sau for the 2023 Shop N Save Super Rugby Pacific season.

Nicknamed “the Sledgehammer”, Sau brings extensive local and international experience to the Club.

He was part of the original championship winning Drua team in Australia’s National Rugby Championship in 2018, the Flying Fijians national team, and the Fiji Airways Fijian 7s team, where he was named the HSBC World Rugby 7s series Rookie of the Year.

He has played for Edinburgh in the English premiership as well as USA Perpignan in France’s ProD2.

He joins the Drua from Provence.

Swire Shipping Fijian Drua Head Coach Mick Byrne welcomed Sau after the winger officially signed on with the Club.

Byrne says

this is a homecoming of sorts for Eroni, who is very highly regarded in Fiji and internationally as a winger and centre.

He adds

Sau is fierce both in attack and defence and he is definitely a player who will excite the fans, and they are looking forward to him contributing to their continued growth.

The Fijian Drua will play its first match of the season against Moana Pasifika at 3.35pm Saturday at Mount Smart in Auckland.
