The Swire Shipping Fiji Warriors, also referred to as Fiji A, is a national representative rugby union team of the Fijirugby union. It is the second-tier side to the Fiji national rugby union team. The Warriors team is selected from players in the Fijian domestic competitions, and competes in the Pacific Rugby Cup against teams such as Samoa A, Tonga A, and Argentina’s Pampas XV.[1]

The Warriors first played in the Pacific Rugby Cup in 2006, but the teams was one of two Fijian sides in the competition for the first five years – the other being the Fiji Barbarians – and so it was not considered to be Fiji A for that period.

In 2010, the Fiji A team played two matches against Tonga A in the first Punjas Series. The team had one win and one loss but claimed the series on aggregate scores.[2] This result was repeated in the second (and concluding) Punjas Series in 2011.[3]

The Pacific Rugby Cup was reorganised in 2011, with Fiji Warriors becoming the sole Fijian representative in the PRC, which has since been mainly contested by national ‘A’ teams. From 2011 onward the Warriors have effectively been Fiji A.

In 2018 the Swire Shipping Fiji Warriors won the PRC, also playing in a World Series Rugby match against the Western Force in Perth where they won.  The team also travelled to Uruguay to play in the Nations Trophy.
