Highlanders pivot Lima Sopoaga has revealed what he needs to improve in order to impress the All Black selectors.

The runaway success on debut against South Africa at Johannesburg last year missed the World Cup squad and is in a quality queue including frontrunner Aaron Cruden, Beauden Barrett and the fast moving Damian McKenzie for the test No. 10 jersey.

Sopoaga told RadioSport's The Crowd Goes Wild that what is best for the Highlanders will not necessarily help his case with Steve Hansen and the other national selectors.

Sopoaga said: "Maybe I could attack the line a little bit more, ball in hand wise...have a go myself every now and then. I seem to be just shovelling on the ball but when you've got so much dangerous talent on your outside it's hard not to feed the ball and let the boys do the damage.


"I think that's probably a bit of a work on but as I said there is so much talent on my outside. Give them ball in space and they'll do the rest so I'll just stick to our systems and see what happens."
