Being able to play in the country’s top domestic rugby competition comes as a blessing for Naitasiri fly-half Tuidraki Samusamuvodre.
The 22-year-old was one of the nine debutants for the Highlanders in round one of the Skipper Cup competition.
Samusamuvodre says it was a dream since childhood to play in the Skipper Competition.
The Nadi lad says he is grateful to be able to play amongst players he grew up watching.
“It’s a huge thing for me because I am new to this crowd and the spectators. I am grateful they are able to come in numbers and support and the team. It is a great culture.”
The former Fiji Warriors captain was impressive for the Highlanders last week as he successfully converted three tries and a penalty.
