The Swire Shipping Fijian Drua are eagerly anticipating the two pre-season hit-outs against the Brumbies and Melbourne Rebels next month.

Fijian Drua Head of Strength and Conditioning Nacanieli Cawanibuka says after 13 weeks of off-season training, the players are eager to test their worth against the two quality sides ahead of the 2024 Shop N Save Super Rugby Pacific season.

“We’ve covered a good three months of training, mileage under their belts. The mood in camp is really high and next week the boys get the opportunity to jump on the field and play an actual game. It’s the first pre-season game for the squad up against the Brumbies so its really exciting.”
