Drua attract Aust venues and cities

Several venues and cities in Australia have shown interest in hosting the Swire Shipping Fijian Drua for their remaining home matches.
 
This was revealed by Drua chief executive Brian Thorburn in a press conference today.
 
Thorburn said that they are looking at venues which have largely populated Fijians who could come in numbers to support the Fijian team.
 
"Placing our matches as closely as possible to where Fijian fans live in Western Sydney and South-East Queensland is really important to us."
 
"We are carefully considering all opportunities for venues in those areas and will share the final selections with all fans as soon as possible."
 
"For now, we request our local area supporters to come out in numbers to catch their Drua live in action wherever we play."
 
"Our amazing fans and the Fijian people remain at the heart of everything we do. It’s their support in the stadium as well as prayers and well wishes from home that our team will ride on every single time we take the field."
 
In the opening of the 2022 Super Rugby Pacific, Drua will take on the NSW Waratahs at 7.45pm on February 18th at CommBank Stadium, Parramatta, NSW.
