    Highlanders' Manu off to Scotland

    2015-03-24 09:42

    Wellington - Highlanders co-captain Nasi Manu will leave the Super Rugby competition at the end of the season to join Edinburgh, the New Zealand club said on Tuesday

    The Highlanders said Manu had signed a two-year contract with the Scottish club but remained focused on this year's Super Rugby campaign.

    "Obviously I want to go out on a good note and I am keen to finish off my time here really successfully and that's my focus at the moment," the veteran No 8 said.

    "I know when the time comes to go it's going to be tough."

    Manu should find conditions familiar in Scotland - the Highlanders home city Dunedin has a similar climate and is known as "the Edinburgh of the south".
