Waisake Naholo did extremely well to outpace Julian Savea when the Highlanders met the Hurricanes two weeks ago… before running into King Julian’s brother Ardie.
A promising Canes attacks saw Julian kick ahead before Naholo gathered the ball and absolutely burned the (similarly) big winger in the dead ball area.
Naholo did well to escape from a dangerous position but what he didn’t expect was to run into little Savea brother Ardie and get buried back five metres.
The Hurricanes went on to blitz the Highlanders 56-20 with Julian Savea getting on the scoresheet later on in the game.
Big Julian is nailed on for a spot in New Zealand’s World Cup squad, but do you think there’s room for Waisake Naholo and Ardie too?
