Nagusa humbled to lead Fijian Drua

Newly appointed Swire Shipping Fijian Drua Captain Nemani Nagusa says he used to dream as a young kid of representing Fiji but never dreamt of leading a Super Rugby side from the country.

The 33-year-old, who has made 18 appearances for the Flying Fijians and has also led the Fiji 7s team previously is humbled by the responsibility and acknowledged the coaches and management for giving the opportunity to lead a young group of Fijian men into Super Rugby.

“It’s a huge honour. I am grateful to God and to my family for their unyielding support throughout my rugby career.”

“When Coach first named me, I was a bit emotional," he said.

“I’m just happy; it’s a privilege to be part of the journey with the guys.”

“We’re the youngest side in this competition experience-wise, but we believe in ourselves, we believe in our team, and we’ll do great things.”

Nagusa will lead the Swire Shipping Fijian Drua out for the first time in Super Rugby on Friday 18 February against the Waratahs at CommBank Stadium, Parramatta.
