“And it will be an open and transparent process which will have both parties from FRU and the Fijian Drua involved in that and that will be coming out in the coming weeks.”

Fijian Drua Chief Executive Mark Evans says administrations of both the men’s and women’s teams will need to agree on the selection of all positions within the franchise.

“But the shared staff, we have an agreement to agree, if we can’t agree, we can’t appoint. It’s as simple as that.”

In a historic move today, Counter Ruck Pte Limited, which oversees the Fijian Drua men’s side has announced it will fully administer the Fijian Drua Women’s side for the 2024 Super W competition in Australia.

They will also utilize the Drua’s team management, logistics, welfare and commercial functions.
