Yeah, 7 of the 12 teams. (Tahs, Rebs, Force, Blues, Highlanders, Drua and Moana Pasifika). The Brumbies even have a fair bit of blue.
This is what happens when marketing gets involved. Blue jerseys sell.
Well they just doubled the number of players with super rugby experience by signing Lomani but oh that’s right as stan sports commentators remind us a zillion times during a druas match they have players who are Olympic champions.Drua have signed Frank Lomani :

Going to need some more big name signings to get competitive which I imagine would happen as surely must be some homesick Fijian rugby players in Europe and Japan.
Gees never thought of that - developing players as well as recruiting back Fijians overseas. Lol thanks for that captain obvious.And what is wrong with commentators talking about the Olympic experience? They’re gold medallist, it’s something they can be proud of and is certainly something that commentators should ackndolege and talk about, especially as most of the super rugby public wouldn’t be aware of who’s who.
Of course they need more Super Rugby/Test experience, they’ll get that by developing players and not just recruiting in big name signings.”

The point was obviously that the former takes time whilst the latter provides obviously the more immediate short term fix given current large gap.
As for the gold medallist comment my tongue in cheek comment is only thing seeming to be mentioned to talk up players given not much other pro experience in the side. React as you will…I don’t need a debate on that so will let that one go to the keeper.
I have been very supportive of Fiji and openly called out I expect them to win the competition within 5 years which will involve luring back overseas Fijians as well as retaining /developing local Fiji talent. But short term fair game to start the obvious that yawning gap short term which yeh my point in isolation was part of the solution will be luring back Fijians from overseas (cough Lomani signing…cough)…
Surely everyone like me wondering what he did - terminated makes you think pretty serious.Ouch ,they didn't need this.
