Swire Shipping Fijian Drua skipper Meli Derenalagi says he’s thankful for the continued trust from coaches, management, and teammates as they gear up for the 2024 Super Rugby Pacific season.
The 25 year old acknowledged the support from his vice-captains and emphasizes the team’s collective goals and hard work towards making history once again.
“First of all, I thank the management for appointing me as captain again. And I thank the boys for their trust for me to lead them. I thank my vice captains for sharing the load off me to go through again another new season,” he shared.
Entering their third year, the Drua squad is focused on improving from their second season with aspirations to secure a home quarter-final.
The Drua’s campaign begins with a highly anticipated match against the Blues on February 24th in Auckland.
