Former Hurricanes captain Andrew Hore said he wanted to prove something to his former team when he played against them for the Highlanders.

The new Highlanders hooker spent 10 years in Wellington but Hurricanes coach Mark Hammett let him go at the end of last year.

"I won't lie - it was pretty motivating to get out there and prove to them I still had some footy left in me," Hore told the Otago Daily Times.

"The team stuck in there and we won ugly, but we won and that was the main thing," Hore said.

"You play in a team for 10 years and lose a lot of sweat for them and gain a lot of respect, really.

"But they could have snuck [in] there with the win in the end but we hung in there."

A defiant Hurricanes side lost 19-17 at home to the Highlanders at Westpac Stadium.
