Players will come and go: Byrne

Head coach Mick Byrne says lucrative contracts and other opportunities would arise which will see the Swire Shipping Fijian Drua lose players.

He said players will come and go as is the case of Swire Shipping Fijian Drua prop Manasa Saulo.

Saulo is currently with French club SA XVSt Charente Rugby Pro as a medical joker.

“All our young players that come in, we want to keep them for as long as we can,” Byrne said.

“But even in the real world, even the best Super Rugby teams have been unable to hold on to their players.

Byrne said it was a cycle that never ends, and the onus was now on them to find suitable replacements.

“It is on us to find the next best player, Fijian players are in high demand around the world, and we just have to be on point in preparing that next breed.”
