The Fijian Drua Under-20 side went down 7-51 in its opening Super Rugby match.

The Ifereimi Rawaqa- coached side arrived in New Zealand yesterday for its first ever Super Rugby U20 season.

The Baby Blues were simply too good for the Fijian side that saw similar thrashing in the Oceania Rugby U20 competition last year.
