The Swire Shipping Fijian Drua has today put out a rallying call to fans for support in their first-ever Super Rugby Pacific match against the Waratahs at CommBank Stadium in Parramatta, Western Sydney on Friday, February 18, 2022.

Chief executive officer Brian Thorburn says although this is an ‘away match’ for them, both the Drua and the Waratahs recognise the historic nature of the game.

“It will be an honour for the first-ever Swire Shipping Fijian Drua matchday 23 players to run out onto the field on 18 February at CommBank Stadium in Parramatta, proudly representing Fiji and Fijians everywhere,” Thorburn said.

“The 25-year dream and this incredible journey we’ve been waiting for will finally become a reality and it will be a moment to remember for years to come.

“We’re calling on Fijian fans and rugby supporters to come out in numbers, paint CommBank Stadium blue and fill it with the sounds of Fiji.

“Let’s show the rugby world what it means for Fiji to have its own team in Super Rugby.”
