Performance is the main aspect of selecting players in the Fijian Drua squad.
Fiji Rugby High Performance Unit General Manager Simon Raiwalui says they look at a player’s potential from past tournaments whether locally or internationally.
Speaking to FBC Sports, Raiwalui says they want the best talent to come out and want to give players the best opportunity to play professionally
He adds there’s a number of factors that go into choosing a player.
“We look at players and the makeup of the squad and that they may need experience on certain areas and leadership, we’re going to have a young team”
