Ex-England wing Denny Solomona makes debut

Former England wing Denny Solomona has been signed by the Highlanders and could make his Super Rugby Pacific debut as early as this week.

The speedster, who is now eligible for Fiji, will be hoping to impress with a dream of pulling on the famous white jersey at the 2023 Rugby World Cup.

“Denny’s come into our environment over the last few weeks, obviously with lots of moving parts with injuries and Covid covers, so he’s come in there, and from day one he’s been in, he’s been outstanding,” Riki Flutey said.

“Outstanding in terms of his leadership around his parts of the game, particularly around defence and also that back three area, so his voice has been really valuable over the last few weeks, and he’s a real opportunity for selection this week.”
