Highlanders advance party to arrive this morning as countdown to Saturday’s Super Rugby clash starts now

Former Ratu Kadavulevu School head boy and rugby captain, Tevita Nabura will be part of the Pulse Highlanders advance party team that arrives into the country today.

The Highlanders advance party also include lock Joshua Dickson and centre Patelesio Tomkinson.

This is a lead-up to this Saturday’s Super Rugby crucial clash against the Chiefs.

The 26-year-old, Nabura who hails from Nakorosule in Naitasiri is excited to come home and believes there are more Highlanders supporters in the country.

This is because former Flying Fijian stars like Manasa Bari, Vula Maimuri, Aisea Tuilevu, the late Seru Rabeni, Vilimone Delasau, and Patrick Osborne have also donned the Highlanders jerseys.

“I’m excited to go home with the Highlanders team,” he said.

“I know people in Suva also support the Highlanders because there were Fijians playing for the team back in the days. People in my village will come out and support the Highlanders very strongly.”

Nabura has called for support from members of the public.

“Everyone in Fiji, we need you to make your way to the ANZ Stadium in Suva on Saturday, June 30, and support the Highlanders,” he said.

 

NAHOLO CAN’T WAIT

All Blacks and Highlanders winger Waisake Naholo is eager to run on the field and to play for the first time in front of his people.

“I’m really excited about this, I see teams like Crusaders and Chiefs going to Fiji and play and I told myself that I also want to go as well.

“Now that the Highlanders are going to Fiji I’m excited about it,” Naholo said.

“I’m sure my families and friends back in Fiji are excited as well.”

The 27-year-old is adamant of the support they will receive from his people of Nadroumai village in Nadroga.

“I’m confident of getting the maximum support, from my village.”

The Highlanders arrive at Nausori International Airport on Thursday at 4.50pm while the Gallagher Chiefs arrive on Wednesday.

 

BUY YOUR TICKETS EARLY

The various stakeholders were hosted to a briefing at the ANZ Stadium VIP lounge yesterday.

Each party were told of their various roles for this week, leading up to the much anticipated Super Rugby encounter on Saturday night between the Chiefs and the Highlanders.

Fiji Sports Council chief executive officer Litiana Loabuka urged fans to purchase their tickets.

“We still got tickets available so we’re urging fans to come and watch Super Rugby live right here, which saves you the cost of travelling to Australia or New Zealand to watch the games,” she said.

The Early Bird Sales promotion has ended last Saturday and therefore the ticket prices will be on its normal price from today.

The Platinum tickets will now be $200, Gold seating is $160, Red $180, concrete is $40 and Grass is $30.
