    Naholo weighing up options

    2017-07-11 12:46

    Cape Town - Highlanders wing Waisake Naholo is contemplating a move to Super Rugby rivals the Chiefs so as to be closer to his family and friends. 

    Naholo's contract with New Zealand Rugby expires at the end of the season and the interest in the 26-year-old's services comes as no surprise. 

    Naholo's partner lives in Cambridge and his two brothers are close by in Hastings and New Plymouth and being closer to them seems like it would be the biggest factor in Naholo's decision.

    "I'd like to stay in New Zealand for at least one more year and go from there," Naholo told the New Zealand Herald. 

    "If I come up to the Chiefs I'll be closer to them and being close to family is important for my rugby career. It helps a lot with many things, but all this time I've been by myself so I don't mind. 

    "I'm weighing things up at the moment and will hopefully come up with a decision in a few more weeks and see where I go from there. 

    "I love playing for the 'Landers and the environment with the boys down there makes me enjoy my rugby."
