Fijian Drua record biggest Super Rugby Pacific crowd

Super Rugby Pacific debutants Fijian Drua made a massive statement by recording the largest attendance of the Super Rugby Pacific season so far in the Drua-Highlanders Round 11 match at ANZ Stadium, Suva with a sell-out crowd of 15,102.

The turnout has the Fijian Drua management looking forward with anticipation to the Drua versus Chiefs match at Lautoka’s Churchill Park where preparations have started in earnest for the Fijian Super Rugby Pacific franchise’s second home game in Fiji, and the first Super Rugby game to be held in the country’s second capital city.

“I’d like to start with a massive vinaka vakalevu to the Fijian people for their support of our team and for being absolutely amazing last Saturday,” Fijian Drua CEO Brian Thorburn said.

“We had the biggest, most vibrant and the loudest crowd of the year. The feedback from all sectors, including the competition organisers, has been full of praise for the way Fiji hosted its own Super Rugby Pacific match. On the field, both teams dazzled, and while we didn’t get the win, we continue to send warning bells around this competition.”

The Highlanders won the match by three points, edging the Fijian Drua 27-24.
