All Blacks wing Waisake Naholo aims to lift his game in 2016.

This was after record-breaking season for the Super Rugby champions Highlanders and Rugby World Cup winners , the All Blacks this year

He made his debut for the All Blacks against Argentina where he cracked a fibula. He was selected for the RWC after he received traditional treatment at his village in Nadroumai, Nadroga.

“My injuries are all history now and everything’s alright. I just have to get fit and be ready for next season,” he said.

Naholo is in the country for two weeks and will jet out next week to team up with Highlanders for the Super Rugby season.

“I’m glad that I can be here to spend Christmas and New Year with my family before I go back,” Naholo said.

“It is great relief, especially when you’re in another part of the world for most of the year  and just communicating through Facebook and telephone. Spending at least two weeks with my family is what I need before I get back to rugby business.”

“It’s going to be hard to say goodbye to my family when I go back.”

He said New Zealand 7s coach Sir Gordon Tietjen had contacted him regarding his availability to for the Rio Olympics.

“I told him that I was going to think about it,” Naholo said.

“It will be very exciting Super Rugby season  with three teams joining the competitions next year.” he said. Edited by Osea Bola
