Pablo Donvido and his mates travelled more than 11,000km from Argentina to Suva to watch the Swire Shipping Fijian Drua take on the Queensland Reds at the HFC Bank Stadium yesterday.

“I have always loved watching rugby from when I was a child, and coming all this way to watch Fiji play is just amazing,” he said.

“Apart from the great game, it is really lovely meeting all the friendly people here, it’s just like we belong here.

“And it is so good to see all the excitement watching the Drua play in their home ground with the fans cheering like crazy, it’s just something great.

“We came here to support the Drua so we can go back and tell stories to our families at home in Argentina.”
