I have always admired Fijian rugby: Byrne

Newly appointed Fijian Drua Head Coach Mick Byrne says he has followed and admired the way Fijian teams play the game over the course of his coaching career and is proud to be given the chance to guide them in their maiden Super Rugby season.

He said Fiji's style of play puts the joy of rugby at its core, and he is very excited to help the Fijian Drua showcase this to the world when the new Super Rugby season starts in February.

"None of us are under any illusions that it will be easy. We understand the challenges ahead of us in this first season, being based away from home."

"But within that challenge lies the opportunity to grow stronger as a team and a Club."

"It will allow us to be patient with our players, help them find their own way and naturally grow into the game we want to play."

"It will be that brand of exciting Fijian rugby that our players and fans love, but with clinical aspects to it in both attack and defence."

"It will be hard work in our first two seasons but the journey will be rewarding and enjoyable," he added.
