Lima Sopoaga is loving being back home in Dunedin ahead of this weekend's third and final Test against France and he's sharing that love around.
The Highlanders first-five spent some time away from the training pitch today with his nine-month-old daughter Milla, bringing her to spend some quality time with her new 'uncles' Ardie Savea and Anton Lienert-Brown.
Sopoaga shared footage of the duo entertaining Milla at a cafe today, giving her hugs and making her laugh.
The 27-year-old was set to finally start in his first All Blacks Test nine months ago when he was granted a release from the team to be with his partner Miriam for Milla's birth.
Sopoaga said after her arrival he couldn't care less about missing the match.
"If I have to wait another 799 days to start a test match. I tell you what, the gift I was blessed with today is well worth it."
