Drua relocates base camp

Adverse weather conditions has forced the Swire Shipping Fijian Drua to relocate their basecamp for the next few rounds.

Extreme weather conditions in northern New South Wales has led to rising water levels at the the Drua basecamp at Lake Ainsworth Sports & Recreation Centre in Lennoxhead.

“With our camp closing due to operational issues caused by the rising water levels, we had no choice but to move to the Gold Coast for the next 10 days,” said chief executive Brian Thorburn.

“It was challenging to move almost 55 people with just a few hours’ notice, but we have managed to find suitable accommodation with training facilities nearby for our entire squad of players and staff.

“Of course, our situation pales in comparison to those folks in Northern NSW and the Northern Rivers region, as they brace themselves for yet more adversity.

“Our thoughts are with them.”

The Drua moved out of camp late yesterday to relocate on the Gold Coast while continuing preparations for Super Rugby rounds seven and eight.

The Fijian Drua clash with the Waratahs at 8.45pm at Cbus Super Stadium on Friday.
