Drua face Blues in ‘22 Super opener

The Fijian Drua embark on their historic Super Rugby journey with an away match in Auckland against the Blues on February 19, next year.

The Super Rugby Pacific draw, which sees the inclusion of the Drua and Moana Pasifika, was announced yesterday by joint venture partners New Zealand Rugby (NZR) and Rugby Australia (RA).

The 2022 fixtures see 14 regular season games– seven home and seven away– for all teams.

The Drua’s home match locations for the 2022 season are yet to be confirmed, with the club aiming to finalise the venues by late December.

The squad is based in Lake Ainsworth, Lennox Head, New South Wales, for its inaugural season to mitigate the risk of potential border restrictions during the competition.

Fijian Drua CEO Brian Thorburn said: “The 25-year dream will become a reality on February 19, 2022.

“Our players, coaches, staff and management simply cannot wait for the season to start.”
