Fiji-born Isi Naisarani has been labeled the complete package and a player to shine if the Rebels are to make a maiden super rugby finals appearance this season.
Naisarani has been named at number eight for tonight’s season-opener against the Brumbies in Canberra.
According to rugby.com.au, Rebels Captain Dane Haylett-Petty says they are expecting Naisarani to be out to make an impact in his first outing against his former club.
Rebels coach Dave Wessels expect big things as Naisarani attempts to fill the shoes of departed number eight Amanaki Mafi and demonstrate he can be a genuine contributor to Michael Cheika’s World Cup squad.
Meanwhile tonight, the Highlanders take on the Chiefs at 6.35while Brumbies play the Rebels at 8.45.
