Byrne tests positive for COVID-19

Swire Shipping Fijian Drua head coach Mick Byrne has tested positive for COVID-19.

He is currently in self-isolation and will be unavailable for tomorrow night’s clash against the NSW Waratahs.

“Mick is clearly gutted not to be with the team but remains in good spirits as he completes his recovery and self-isolation period,” said chief executive Brian Thorburn.

"He continues to call the shots, of course, and the players are in the very capable hands of our coaching and management staff. Mick will join the team once cleared by the medical staff.

“This is just a minor bump in the road compared to everything else we’ve faced in our inaugural season.”

The Fijian vs Waratahs match will be played at 8.45pm at Cbus Super Stadium on Friday.
