Naholo extends Highlanders stay


New Zealand wing Waisake Naholo has signed a new one-year contract with the Highlanders.

The 26-year-old flyer, who won his 13th All Blacks cap in the second-Test defeat to the British and Irish Lions this month, was linked with a move to the Chiefs but has extended his stay with the Dunedin-based franchise.

Naholo, who was out of contract at the end of this season, said: "Really excited to announce I've decided to stay another year with the Landers,

"I love playing down here and playing in New Zealand, and looking forward to another big year next year."

The Highlanders will look to Naholo to celebrate his new deal by putting on a show in their Super Rugby quarter-final against the Crusaders on Saturday.
