Talks on For Fijian Drua Players’ Inclusion in Fiji Olympics Squad

Talks are ongoing between Fiji 7s head coach Ben Gollings and the management of the Swire Shipping Fijian Drua on the possibility of the inclusion of some key players from the Super Rugby Club into the team that is to defend the Olympic Gold medal spot in July this year.

In an interview, Gollings said they were mindful of the busy Super Rugby season ahead of the Fijian Drua.

“We’ve had some discussions with them (Drua management) because there are some specific players that we have our eyes on but that discussion is still ongoing.”

Fijian Drua Skipper Tu Meli Derenalagi and Iosefo Masi who are integral members of the existing Fijian Drua squad were part of the Fiji 7s outfit that played in the Tokyo Olympics.

Fiji plays Spain, Canada, and then Argentina in the Vancouver 7s beginning this weekend.
