Fiji Prime Minister's XIII

Fiji Prime Minister's XIII, or sometimes informally referred to as the Fiji PM's XIII, is the name of a representative rugby league team, comprising Fijian players from the Fiji National Rugby League. Established in 2019, the team is selected to play an annual fixture against Australian Prime Minister's XIII in Fiji at the end of the rugby league season.

History

From 2005 to the 2018, the Australian Prime Minister's XIII side played an annual fixture against the PNG Prime Minister's XIII in Papua New Guinea. On 12 March 2019, the NRL announced that the Australian PM's XIII side would play the Fiji Prime Minister's XIII for the first time.[1]

The first game between the two will be played at Suva's ANZ National Stadium, with the Fijian side comprising players from the Fiji National Rugby League competition.[2][3]
