Defending Super W champions, the Rooster Chicken Fijian Drua Women will start their title defense against Queensland Reds this Sunday.

The squad has been blessed after moving camp to join the Swire Shipping Fijian Drua in Nadi.

Forward Nunia Uluikadavu says their journey to retaining the trophy starts this weekend but the new experience of training and using the same ground and facility as the Swire Shipping Fijian Drua really helps them.
