Nadolo, Kerevi Named Among Super Rugby Reps To Watch
Crusaders giant and Vodafone Flying Fijian Nemani Nadolo has been named in list of Super Rugby players for Northern Hemisphere teams to watch at the 2015 Rugby World Cup.
As reported by Wale Online yesterday, the dynamic star at either ‘wing or centre, is a freakish talent and has been on fire for the Crusaders in recent weeks’.
The Welsh website also attributed Nadolo’s achievement of having equalled the all-time record of All Blacks legends Christian Cullen and Sir John Kirwan by scoring 10 tries in consecutive matches as a major factor that Wales would need to be wary of when they clash with Fiji in the World Cup.
Queensland Reds Centre Samu Kerevi was another Fijian mentioned in the list.
“Largely negated by the seriously impressive Chiefs defensive effort at the weekend, but the Reds’ centre has been making waves Down Under this season. The 21-year-old is on Aussie coach Michael Cheika’s radar and is a devastating runner.
Other notable names listed included All Blacks superstars Dan Carter, Ma’a Nonu and Liam Messam, Wallabies trio David Pocock, Quade Cooper and Israel Folau and Springbok Cornal Hendricks.
Fiji is grouped with Wales, England, Australia and Uruguay and will feature in the opening match of the tournament against host England at 8pm at Twickenham in London on September 18.
They face Australia on September 23 at Millennium Stadium in Cardiff, Wales before taking on Wales on October 1 at the same venue, playing their final pool match against Uruguay at Stadiummk in Milton Keynes on October 6. The 2015 Rugby World Cup will be held from September 18 to October 31 in England.
