Swire Shipping Fijian Drua head coach, Mick Bryne, is working hard to ensure that they become a competitive side in their Super Rugby Pacific debut opener against the Waratahs on February 18.

Speaking to SUNsports this week, Byrne indicated that top of their list is what they hope to gain from their warm-up matches against the Western Force on January 28 followed by Melbourne Rebels on February 10.

This, Bryne says, gives them the hope to execute a few moves they had been working on.

“We hope to ensure that we can implement our training at game pace,” the 63-year-old said.

“Also, we’re working towards getting our systems in place and continuing to develop our decision-making, both in attack and defence.”

Bryne who was the All Blacks skills coach during their 2011 and 2015 Rugby World Cup wins said, the local-based players have settled in well to a very professional environment.

“The Fijian based-players have adapted very well to life in the village at Lake Ainsworth.

“They have enjoyed life so close to the beach and have created a very village-like atmosphere in camp.

“They have also enjoyed having all the professional settings here on site.

“The gym, pool, field, beach recovery and team analysis room are all only a short walk from their village.”

Bryne said with the Waratahs clash drawing closer the focus have been on strength and conditioning.

“This to help them get ready for the rigours of Super Rugby.

“Our set piece, both attack and defence and our phase play systems in both attack and defence, including counter and kick chase.”
