Ready, waiting

Maciu Malo
Thursday, June 30, 2016

CRUSADERS' flyer Nemani Nadolo is eager to showcase his talent in front of his home fans in tomorrow's historic Super Rugby game in Suva.

The Namatakula native, who has returned from a four-week suspension for a dangerous tackle on Brumbies' halfback Tomas Cubelli, is eager to make his presence felt for the seven-time Super Rugby champions.

Nadolo said he was looking forward to a good outing and would do his best to help his team win.

With fellow countryman Jone Macilai playing beside him, Nadolo admitted he was eager to flex his muscles against Seta Tamanivalu's Chiefs outfit.

Nadolo said having three Fijians during the game would be exciting.

"We are looking forward to the game and I just cannot wait," said the Flying Fijian.

"And with three Fijian boys in the side, we have been looking forward to this from the beginning of the competition."

He said the side was back to full strength with their All Blacks players back in the squad to spearhead the Crusaders' campaign.

"The boys came back from international games and are looking forward to this game."

Crusaders head coach Todd Blackadder said Nadolo played a crucial part in their campaign.

He said the presence of Nadolo and Macilai would also attract local fans.

"We know it's a Chiefs' home game, but we believe there will be some red and black fans during the game," said Blackadder.

"Nemani is a rock star in the team and he is looking forward to this game."

Nadolo has represented the Crusaders on 36 occasions starting in 2014, scoring 26 tries in total.

The much-anticipated clash kicks off at 7.30pm.
