Priscott drafted in by Highlanders
April 6, 2000
Matthew Priscott, who made an impressive NPC debut for Otago in 1999, has been called to the subs' bench for the Highlanders' game against the Brumbies in Canberra on Friday.
Injuries to wingers Romi Ropati, Rico Gear and Dan Parkinson have left the side short of outside back cover.
After his impressive second half against the Crusaders, sevens star Karl Te Nana gets a start against the Brumbies. The full squad:
15. Marc Ellis
16. Brendan Laney
