He's played exclusively at fullback for the past two season but could be moved into centre so he gets more time with the ball.
He's the most devastating runner I've seen. Makes Damien Mackenzie look like Richard Loe.
Speaking of Etene Nanai, he will be a Chief as of next year. Most thought he was lost to Union having signed for the Warriors as a 5th Former that but contract only covered him for his schoolboy years and the Chiefs have since won the race for what must be most sought after signature in schoolboy rugby.
I reckon they've got that selection just about perfect. Yeah, you could've rested Whitelock but maybe he's there for stability/consistency so that team run about 30 points in the first 30 minutes and then he can take a seat.
The last thing you want with a banana skin game is to get stunned early and not have a figurehead there to correct things. Although, Kieran Read should be able to do that regardless of his freshness.
@Kiwidom He had gone to Palmerston North in his first year out of high school but then return to Wanganui last year. Maybe he's gone back to Palmy.
I hope he gets his chance somewhere. It scares me that there are still kids as talented as him that can simply full through the cracks of the talent pathway.
Awful and sad. Playing touch, minding her own business. She wasn't even involved in the action when it happened.
She was on life support over the weekend and the family were waiting for her brother to fly back from the UK to say goodbye before ultimately turning off life support.
NZ Netball ought to name the new ANZ Championship trophy in her honour.
Looks like your connection to Wurzel was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
