About Us

The Fijian Drua are Super Rugby Pacific’s newest franchise, and are proud to represent Fiji in the world’s toughest professional club rugby competition.

The dream to have a Fijian Club in Super Rugby was born 25 years ago, and finally becomes a reality in February 2022.

We may be a new Club but we are one with very strong roots. Fijian Rugby itself is 108 years old, and Fijian teams and players have established themselves among the world’s best.

The Fijian Drua identity and brand is unique and pays homage to the origins of the franchise name. The brand identity features the stylised version of the iconic drua, the renowned and powerful traditional Fijian sea vessel transporting warriors across the world’s mightiest ocean. Strong and extremely fast, it ruled the South Seas. It is befitting as a name and an identity for a franchise featuring players who are warriors on the rugby field, playing fast, powerful and fearless rugby.

The brandmark connects the franchise to its roots and symbolises the journey the Fijian Drua has embarked on – a journey powered by the heart and spirit of the Fijian people.

The Fijian Drua franchise is made up of some of the region’s best rugby players, including Olympic Gold Medalists, international ‘Flying Fijians’, seasoned veterans and up and coming stars. At the helm, we have world class coaches and staff, led by Head Coach Mick Byrne.

Every member of the Fijian Drua vuvale is committed to sharing the joy of rugby with typical Fijian flair, both on and off the field.
