The quarter finals fixtures for the Shop N Save Super Rugby Pacific have been confirmed after the conclusion of the last round-robin matches last night with the Swire Shipping Fijian Drua set to take on defending champions the Crusaders next Saturday.

The Fijian Drua created history last night by becoming the only team in the Super Rugby Pacific competition to make it into the playoffs in just its second year of participation.

They showed a lot of courage and sheer determination against a star-studded Reds side to secure a 41-17 dominant win at home and move to 7th place.
