Crusaders wing Nemani Nadolo hopes to finish his season with Crusaders on a high note before joining France Top 14 club, Montpellier next season.

“This is my last year with Crusaders before joining fellow Flying Fijians Akapusi Qera and Timoci Nagusa in Montpellier.

“I will do everything I can to give back to the club that’s given me a lot, not every day you get to play here in Fiji with the Crusaders,” Nadolo said.

“Looking forward to just finish the season on a high and come away with some silverware.”

Nadolo will pair up with Jone Macilai on the wings against the Chiefs tomorrow night.

He said the Crusaders will have the advantage in terms of fan numbers.

“There are a lot of Crusaders supporters here, I found out when I was in the Crusaders headquarters the other day.

“We had 300,000 plus likes on our Facebook page and 50,000 of them are from Fiji alone so it goes to show that we got 50,000 supporters here in Fiji and that’s a big.

“We are looking forward to give you guys a win and something to smile about.”

Nadolo believes playing on a neutral ground is another added advantage for both teams.

“Even though this is Chiefs’ home game, this is a neutral ground we are all excited to be here.

“It’s great to be here, playing against the Chiefs, it’s pretty much our finals for the New Zealand Conference and what a way to have it here in Fiji.

“For me personally, I’m really excited to be playing here, this is history in the making.”

 

TC Winston Appeal

The Crusaders are expected to make donations to schools in Ovalau and Ra who were affected by Tropical Cyclone Winston.

“We will be donating to a few schools that were affected by Winston. We know how important this is for the school children.”

 

Tier One nation

He believes Tier One nations like All Blacks, England, Australia and Wales should visit Fiji.

“The pitch is in perfect shape, hopefully to see more games in Fiji in the future. “I want to see more Tier One nations come and play in our country.”

 

2019 RWC plans

“We all want to play in the RWC, we all want to do well from last year even though we didn’t get what we expected.

“The 2019 RWC in Japan; it’s everyone’s dream to try and make it.

“If I can keep my body well and definitely I can wear the white jersey again.”
