Former All Blacks and Crusaders  fullback Israel Dagg is confident that Crusaders will return to Fiji in future and play in front of their Fijian fans.

This will be the final year Fiji will host a Super Rugby match under the current agreement.

“I love Fiji, there is  beautiful people here, Fiji is always a great host, it’s always great to come to Fiji,”Dagg said.

“ I’m sure this will not be the end of Super Rugby in Fiji but I’m sure we will come back.”

Dagg agrees that the BNZ Crusaders will have more supporters then the Gallagher Chiefs at the ANZ Stadium tomorrow night.

“ We have a lot of fans here, we have more fans then Chiefs, we have handed out flags and sign autographs in a way of connecting with the community,” Dagg said.

‘Smallest things make biggest difference’-  Mataele

During the Crusaders community visit at Holy Trinity Anglican School and Jai Narayan College yesterday Crusaders winger Manasa Mataele advised young Fijian rugby players to do everything right in silence and they  will be rewarded.

“One of my favourite quotes is by Ray Haring ‘The Smallest Things makes the Biggest Difference’ for me is, whatever you have, what you do with that doesn’t matter where you come from, you can always reach wherever you wanna go,” Mataele said.

Mataele grew up in Raiwai, attended Annesley Infant Primary School, Suva Methodist Primary, Dudley Intermediate, Marist Brothers Primary and Marist Brothers High School.

“No matter where you are , no matter what you do, you can always reach whatever you want if you do liitle things right

“Students remember what you do in secret God will reward you. Doesnt’ matter who sees you, doesn’t matter who talks to you or whatever you may think, if you do  little things right you will go a long way,” Mataele added.
