He’s also thankful to the coaching team for looking after him following his injury in the 2022 Super Rugby Pacific season.

The young skipper says he’s ready to get back on the field with his mates.

“It was a quite a hard  journey for me coming back to the field as I was in surgery, now I started training again doing some couple of hard yards trying to improve.”

The Drua will announce their squad for the 2023 Shop N Save Super Rugby Pacific competition at their home base in Nadi today.

The team’s first game for the 2023 season is against Moana Pasifika at Mount Smart Stadium in Auckland, New Zealand on February 25.
