The Fijian Drua will be based in Lennox Head in New South Wales for the 2022 Super Rugby Pacific season. The seaside town on the Far North Coast is situated 20 minutes south of Byron Bay and a one-hour drive from the Gold Coast.
The Drua squad will assemble this week at the Lake Ainsworth Sport and Recreation Centre, where the players will live and train for the next eight months.
Interim CEO Brian Thorburn said it wasn’t easy finding a location where the team could base itself for such an extended period.
“We needed to find a home base where the team could initially prepare over a three-month period until the end of January 2022, which then could be used as a home base between Super Rugby Pacific matches during the 2022 season,” he said.
