Drua presents itatu to His Excellency

His Excellency, the President Major-General (Ret’d) Jioji Konrote received the itatau from the Fiji Drua Team and the Management at the State House yesterday afternoon.

While receiving the itatu, President Konrote shared his sentiments saying it has always been a pleasant duty, great honour and privilege for him to receive sporting teams before embarking on overseas engagements.

"The members of the newly constituted and selected Drua national Fijian rugby team, our heartiest congratulations to each and every one of you for making the cut and being selected into this elite and prestigious group of professionals who will be donning the traditional white and black National Fijian Rugby Union Colours,” President Konrote said.

He also acknowledged the Fiji Rugby Union Officials for their perseverance in getting the national Drua rugby team into the Super Rugby Pacific Competition.

"Thank you, most sincerely, for your tireless efforts in enabling our young and talented rugby players to participate in a world class rugby competition, which would enable them to showcase their talents and improve Fiji’s world profile, while also benefiting the players socially and financially."

The Drua national Fijian rugby team will be representing Fiji in the 2022 Super Rugby Pacific Competition Series in Australia.
