Drua to sign 37 players for Super Rugby

The Fijian Drua management aims to sign 37 players for the 2022 Super Rugby Pacific season.

Interim chief executive Brian Thorburn while revealing the names and signing of five players in a press conference yesterday said they will be announcing the names of other players soon.

The five players signed yesterday are Tokyo Olympics Gold medalist Napolioni Bolaca, hooker Tevita Ikanivere, winger Onisi Ratave,  forward Nemani Nagusa and halfback Simione Kuruvoli.

Thorburn mentioned that 37 players would help the Drua team to grow and also provide opportunity to local based players and the player selection is based on the Drua criteria which players need to meet in order to attain the jumper.

He added that players who are contracted by the Drua will not be able to join any other team for two years.
