World Rugby Chairman Sir Bill Beaumont today officially opened the Fijian Drua’s Home Base.
"We faced many challenges during our covid-impacted inaugural season this year. We had to use Lennox Head in New South Wales, Australia as a temporary home base, and had to evacuate from there twice due to flooding. While Lennox Head was great for us, we’re delighted to finally be able to put roots down right here in Nadi and truly stay, train and play at home."
"The help that you received from all your sponsors and everybody involved will enable your players to stay on the island and train here, while playing in the top competition. It is a true partnership and what I can see is that because of this, Fijian Rugby will continue to go strength to strength, and this will not only improve the Drua, but also improve the national team as well.”
