PULSE Energy Highlanders Fijian players Tevita Nabura and Waisake Naholo are calling on Fijians to come and support the team as they play against the Chiefs in June at the ANZ Stadium.
New Zealand All Blacks winger Naholo in a video posted by the Highlanders team had sent an invitation to his family and friends to come and watch them take on one of the toughest teams in the history of Super Rugby.
“I am really excited about our game at home, as I’ve seen some of the teams that had played there and for me I want to go and play in front of my family and friends,” Naholo said.
“I am pretty sure all my families and friends are eager to watch us play and see the Highlanders come over.”
Nabura who hails from Naitasiri is a former Ratu Kadavulevu School head boy. Nabura made his debut for the Highlanders last year against the Stormers in New Zealand was sensational and also being part of the Fiji Airways 7s men’s extended squad was a big boost for him.
“We have a lot of people supporting the Highlanders,” he said.
“We have a lot of Fijian players who had represented this team in the past years like Aisea Tuilevu, Fero Lasagavibau and Iliesa Tanivula so we have a good chance.”
Both players are eager to play in front of their home crowd come June 30.
