What’s Luke McCallister up to?
Or, perish the thought, Ian Foster who had a game or two at first five for Waikato. He is already on the NZRFU payroll so would not cost us shareholders any more.
Watched the All Blacks training at Kilbirnie Park a couple of hours back. Took my boots along just in case but quite frankly flatly refuse to play in anything other than Mizuno so when the trainers headed my way got them out of my bag and waved them in their direction only to see them do a quick about turn.
As an aside it was rather hilarious watching the ABs sharing the ingoal area in front of the swimming pool with a guy practicing what looked like some sort of Israel Folau sign language yoga. He paid them no attention whatsoever and defended his space magnificently!
It is club cricket so not unexpected no Black Caps would be available for selection. Jesse Ryder batted at number five so there was one player that has played at the very top level out there giving back to his club (he is Tech's player/coach). By the way Greerton, demolished by ten wickets, were one of the team despatched.
Speaking of Premier Reserve yesterday I watched a 2019 NZ Under 20s player starting for his club in that grade and he also had the well perfromed Fa'atonu Fili directing things from first five after half time. Needless to say but it did make things a trifle difficult for their opponents.
