Fijian rugby fans have given the Crusaders a rousing welcome ahead of Friday's clash against the Chiefs in Suva.

Crusaders and All Blacks utility Seta Tamanivalu posted a video on his Facebook page of fans singing and clapping to the players.

Tamanivalu, who was born in Lautoka, Fiji, said he had goosebumps during the greeting after fans waited 30 minutes in the rain to see the Super Rugby players.
