Evans says they are also very confident that Byrne will be completely focused on the remainder of the Super Rugby Pacific season.

The Drua says once the SRP is completed, hopefully some time into June, Byrne will be able to give the national team his full focus and attention.

The Fijian Drua says it will now undertake a process to appoint a replacement in the coming months.
