Fiji Airways Drua Captain John Stewart has revealed the huge pride his players have for playing for their passionate, rugby‑mad supporters in Australia and back home in Fiji.
In an interview with rugby.com.au, Stewart says they are really enjoying the experience, especially to be in the competition for the first time.
He says they came into the competition as a team and they did not want to come into the competition to make up the numbers.
Stewart says they wanted to come in and compete, and that’s what they have been doing so far.
He says the biggest adjustment is the tempo of the game, the physicality, and most of all facing the weather and the climate.
The Fijian Drua Captain says coming from 32 or 34 degrees at home, and to be only 20 degrees in Australia is a big challenge for them.
The Fiji Airways Drua will face Sydney Rams at 4pm today.Listen to the latest news on our 5 radio stations Legend FM, Viti FM, Radio Sargam, FM96 and Navtarang.
