NRL NINES | Heighington speaks
They say the NRL Nines is a format which suits the fleet of foot, the flashy and skillful playmakers who benefit from the extra space afforded them with four less players on the field.
While not looking to be disparaging, Chris Heighington probably fails to fall into the above category but don't try telling him the Nines doesn't suit his style of play.
One of the stars of the 2015 Dick Smith NRL Nines, that status confirmed by him being named in the Team of the Tournament, Heighington spoke about his desire to compete in the event once again in 2016 when interviewed by Amie Lindsell from NRL Films.
Although Sharks coach Shane Flanagan is yet to reveal his Nines line-up, there is every chance Heighington will be a part of the squad, alongside what he hopes to once again be a competitive Sharks outfit.
See what Heighington had to say about all things Auckland Nines in his interview with NRL Films, which is now playing on Sharks TV.
