Twelve-year-old, Meli Tueli, cannot wait to join the chorus of fans cheering on for his favourite team, Crusaders.

He will join the thousands watching the Super Rugby’s Chiefs vs Crusaders game at the ANZ Stadium on Friday night.

The Veiuto Primary School student became the youngest winner of the Fiji Sun Super Rugby promotion which was drawn on Friday.

He and four others came to the Fiji Sun office to pick their tickets.

“I entered seven times and I was really expecting to win and I’m looking forward to watching my favourite Crusaders player, Richie Mo’unga play,” said the gold ticket winner.

But unlike Meli, another gold ticket winner, Andrew Houng-Lee has opted to gift his ticket.

“I’ll be giving my ticket to someone special as a Mother’s Day gift,” Mr Houng-Lee said.

Platinum winner, Brij Ram said he was ‘super’ excited to cheer for his team, Chiefs.

Winners who also collected their tickets yesterday were Simione Loli and Pauliasi Vodoicama.
