This week we are hyping for the season opener for the Fijian Drua and I can tell you that the anxiety is through the roof as this is one for the history books. Who would have thought that we’d have a team in the Super Rugby .
In the first match the Drua will battle it out with the Waratahs and this will be nothing short of a brilliant match up. So you can expect a whole lot of magic on the day.

The NSW Waratahs are on guard against a first-round ambush as they prepare to face competition’s newcomers, the Swire Shipping Fijian Drua this Friday in the opening match of the Super Rugby Pacific competition.
Winless in 2021, the Tahs enter their season opener at Commbank Stadium with renewed confidence after an unbeaten trial campaign against the Queensland Reds, Brumbies and combined Shute Shield opposition.
NSW attacking coach Chris Whitaker says
the Drua’s talents were there for all to see during their initiation in the National Rugby Championship from 2017 to 2019, including their win in 2018.
they’re freak athletes and not short on recruiting some talents.
whether they’re starting the game or finishing the game, they’ve all got natural ability and, once they start to click, they will be a dangerous team and that’s for sure.
The Waratahs meet the Drua at 8.45 pm this Friday. This is the time we back our FIJIAN DRUA.
In other matches, the Chiefs will take on the Highlanders at 3.35 pm Saturday, the Crusaders will play the Hurricanes at 6.05 pm Saturday, the Reds will face the Rebels at 8.45 pm Saturday and the Brumbies meet the Western Force at 3 pm Sunday.
