Swire Shipping Fijian Drua Head Coach Mick Byrne has named his squad for the round 13 crunch match against NSW Waratahs this Saturday, in what will be the side’s final away game in the 2023 Shop N Save Super Rugby Pacific. The major highlight is the first ever inclusion of Flying Fijians prop Mesake Doge in the matchday 23 for the Drua. Doge returns to competitive rugby after a long injury break. He will take his place on the bench and could be a potential debut this weekend.
Clarkie chats with Chris Thomson (GM ACT Brumbies) as they review our matches to date with Chris sharing a bit on his own journey with the Drua as we look forward to our next game against the Brumbies this Friday 14th April at GIO Stadium, Canberra. Fun fact: Chris used to be part of the Drua vuvale during our NRC days.
