Former All Blacks flanker Liam Messam was a hit with kids in Fiji, as his Super Rugby side the Chiefs touched down in Suva yesterday.
TV NZ reports, the 34-year-old said he couldn’t leave Fiji without playing a touch game.
“You don’t come to Fiji without playing Fiji touch with the kids. So humbling and a blessing seeing these kids throw a rugby ball around, running around on gravel in bare feet doing what they love with a massive smile.”
He played 43 Tests for the All Blacks and is to play for French club Toulon at the end of the 2018 Super Rugby season.
The Chiefs take on the Highlanders at 7.35pm Saturday at Suva’s ANZ Stadium. The gate opens from 4pm.
