GOOD News for Fiji and its rugby fans.

There's likely to be more Super Rugby matches coming to our shores after the success of last year's inaugural match between the Gallagher Chiefs and Crusaders at the ANZ Stadium.

With the second match 10 months later last night between the two teams, hosts Chiefs and SANZAR had indicated their liking in bringing more matches to Fiji, not only the Chiefs and the Crusaders.

This was revealed last night by Fiji Sports Council and Super Rugby games organising committee chair, Litiana Loabuka.

"We have been advised through the official lines that we going to have two more Super Rugby games after today. We have no idea which teams will be coming. We will be told more late after SANZAR makes the decision," she said.

Last night, under favourable conditionscompared to last July when the Chiefs suprised the Crusaders 23-13, Loabuka was happy that we again sold out the game.

"They came slowly, but I am happy that fans continued to come right to the last day. It is a good indication of the passion that we have in rugby.

"I thank the whole team which helped in making this happen and the volunteers," she said.

Fans from all races and sizes turned up at the match.
