Flying Fijians Hooker Mesulame Dolokoto, flyhalf Teti Tela and prop Haereiti Hetet are the latest wave of players who have been confirmed for the Fijian Drua.

Hetet currently plays for Bay of Plenty in the NPC and is the son of former Flying Fijians prop Joeli Veitayaki.

The other four players revealed today are Fijian U20 star Tuidraki Samusamuvodre, Nadi forward Vilive Miramira and Counties Manukau stars Zuriel Togiatama and Viliame Rarasea.

Fijian Drua Interim CEO Brian Thorburn has also confirmed that injured Flying Fijians, Fijian 7s and Drua star Alivereti Veitokani is part of the wider Drua set-up.

Thorburn says they will organise for Veitokani’s assessment and rehabilitation in 2022 and he is expected to return to top-level rugby with the Fijian Drua for the 2023 Super Rugby season.

34 players have been confirmed so far and a few more are expected to be revealed in the coming weeks.

The Drua will leave for Australia next week.
