Naholo returns to the Highlanders

Fijian born winger Waisake Naholo has been welcomed back to his Highlanders side after his injury recovery.
He has been named on the bench for their upcoming Super Rugby clash against the Lions on Sunday.
The 28-year old has been out of rugby action since March after injuring his knee at training following his side’s 32-26 loss against the Blues.
The Fijian Flyers’ return to the Highlanders is been considered timely with more of his club teammates like outside backs Ben Smith, Tevita Li, Tevita Nabura and Richard Buckman being ruled out against the Lions.
This gives Naholo an opportunity to impress the All Blacks selectors ahead of the Rugby World Cup in Japan.
