The Swire Shipping Fijian Drua will kick off its Shop N Save Super Rugby Pacific campaign with a pre-season trial match against the Melbourne Rebels in Nadi on 28 January.
"It will be a great Saturday afternoon out for rugby lovers as our Drua take on an exciting Melbourne Rebels outfit packed with current and emerging Australia stars. It will be a community feel for this trial match with ticket prices at $6 and $12. Fans will also get to meet their Drua favourites after the match, which is always exciting especially for kids.”
"I think practice games are always difficult. We know what the opposition when we're training, we know what the opposition team will bring, so part of going against the Melbourne Rebels will be how we adapt to things we haven't seen before and our ability to work under the pressure of a game. "
