June 21, 2015 12:10 am
Highlanders Fijian Flyer and Former All Blacks Sevens wing Waisake Naholo is one of the top bets to make it to the All Blacks extended 40 member squad for the Rugby World Cup to be named later today.
Naholo is the current top try scorer in this Super Rugby season and has proven that he will be a hard man to leave behind.
Meanwhile Naholo scored a brace of tries to help his Highlanders team beat the Chiefs 24-14 in the Super Rugby playoffs last night.
In another playoff match, the Brumbies defeated the Stormers 39-19.
In the first semi-final, the Hurricanes will meet the Brumbies at 7.35pm next Saturday while the Waratahs will clash with the Highlanders at 9.40pm.
