THE Fijian Drua’s National Rugby Championship victory last year and the Fiji under 20’s qualification back into the World Rugby Under-20 Championship are seen as positive results coming through the development programs carried out by the Fiji Rugby Union.
Flying Fijians coach John McKee said the FRU had been running academy programs over the last four years.
“The guys are doing a great job and now you start to see these players come through,” McKee said.
“The Fijian Drua’s performance in the NRC last year was a reflection of the strength of the local players.
“It is very pleasing for me to see the Fiji U20 get back into the World Rugby U20 Championship and maintain their status.”
