Flying Fijians halfback, Nemia Kenatale hopes to impress enough during the second half of the national provincial championship in New Zealand to earn a Super Rugby contract.
The 26-year-old, who will start against North Harbour on Saturday, has been impressive coming off the bench for Southland during the first five rounds of the competition.
Kenatale has played 25 tests for Fiji and was a member of the Highlanders’ wider-training squad this year.
He played in last year’s World Cup for Fiji and scored a try against the All Blacks when the two teams met in the final test at Carisbrook in 2011.
He has since been the understufy to All Blacks halfback, Jimmy Cowan.
