Swire Shipping continues its support to Fiji rugby by being the major sponsor of the Fijian Drua in their inaugural Super Rugby Pacific voyage beginning February 18.

They have signed a two-year deal.

Interim Fijian Drua chief executive officer Brian Thorburn made the announcement at Grand Pacific Hotel, Suva, last night.

 

Thorburn said this was a historic moment for Fijian Rugby.

“Swire Shipping has secured its place in Fijian professional rugby history and the 2022 Fijian Drua jersey is a reflection of it,” he said.

Thorburn indicated that FRU High Performance Manager Simon Raiwalui would join the Fijian Drua team as a scrum coach.
