Fijian Drua Chief Executive Mark Evans thanked the nine for their contribution over the past two years.

He says they achieved much in their first two seasons of Super Rugby due to the contribution of these nine players.

The departing players will be acknowledged at the final Drua home match this season against the Queensland Reds.

The match kicks off at 4.35pm at the HFC Bank Stadium in Suva.

This is a crucial match for the Drua who need a win to reach a historic first playoff spot.
