Pulse Highlanders lock forward Josh­ua Dickson is excited to be in Fiji for the first time.

He arrived yesterday with the Highlanders advance party to help hold coaching clinics with schools around Suva and help promote the Super Rugby clash against the Chiefs at the ANZ Stadium, Suva, on Saturday.

The 23-year-old was born in Perth, Aus­tralia but was raised in New Zealand where he attended Otago Boys High School

“I have been to Samoa but it feels great to be part of the advance team coming here and enjoy the sun and drink some Fiji Wa­ter,” he said.

When asked on how he reacted to the news when he first heard his team will be play­ing Chiefs in Suva, Dickson says, it was a surprise for him.

“It was good news at first then they said that it is only the team is coming to Fiji but later on they told us that the whole squad is coming. So I was excited, surprised and happy to be playing here.”

Dickson said he expects a tough and excit­ing game against the Chiefs.

“We always meet and it’s always a fast expansive game, high tempo and a speed game.”
