The Fijian Drua Super Rugby franchise is excited to host its first ever major community tour in the country to further strengthen its links with fans.

Swire Shipping Fijian Drua players will visit 17 schools along the Nadi-Rakiraki corridor this Wednesday and Thursday, engaging with students to generate more interest and involvement in the sport.

Drua chief executive Mark Evans said the Club and players are excited be in the community to help develop grassroots rugby.

“We love being in the community whenever we can and are aware of the positive impact our players can have on younger fans.”

“Alongside Fiji Rugby, we are committed to grassroots development and will use two days this week away from training to help share some skills and knowledge among various schools.”

“This also brings us closer to the incredible fans who support us tirelessly.”

Evan said the community tour will have an exciting lineup of activities designed for rugby enthusiasts of all ages.

“Students and fans will have the opportunity to meet and interact with some of their favourite players while participating in skill-building clinics, and engage in fun-filled rugby-themed games and competitions.”
