Sport: Flying Fijians winger Nadolo racially abused

11:41 am on 4 August 2014

The Crusaders and Flying Fijians wing Nemani Nadolo says he is hurt after being on the receiving end of racial abuse.

The 26 year old was a star peformer in this year's Super Rugby competition, topping the try-scoring charts with 12, alongside Waratahs flyer Israel Folou.

Nadolo was on the scoresheet in Saturday's grand final in Sydney but it wasn't enough to prevent a 33-32 defeat to New South Wales.

The team arrived back in New Zealand on Sunday and in the early hours of Monday morning Nadolo tweeted that it was "disappointing", after all he has done to contribute to Christchurch to be called an "unfit chubby n****a".
