    Christian Leali'ifano is excited to square off against the players he once taught as apprentices


    The former Brumbies playmaker will face his old side tonight for the first time, wearing Moana Pasifika colours.

    The match, which was originally scheduled for round one before border closures got in the way, will see the 34 year old face in-form Canberra number 10 Noah Lolesio .

    Leali'ifano says the younger player is in great touch currently.



    Lolesio has eight caps for the Wallabies... kickoff against the Brumbies is from 5 past 7 at Mt Smart.
