@Higgins Not one single player from this year's NZU20 has been named in the NZ Māori U20s team to play Fiji U20, so that doesn't say much about Billy Proctor. A lot of other SR players missed out on the Māori ABs, too. There are even players who made the Māori All Blacks squad, but aren't getting any game time (replacement players Billy Harmon and Pouri Rakete-Stones, as well as Jackson Garden-Bachop and Jonathan Ruru).
CHIEFS U18 DEVELOPMENT CAMP 2019 Ever wondered what goes on at the representative level of 1st XV Rugby? We went along to the Gallagher Chiefs camp this year to see what the young men from schools around the region got up to. If you're after game highlights of the match between the Chiefs U18s and The Blues U18s, you can find them at 4:19. We spoke to Kent Curry, Player Development Officer, about why these camps are important. We then caught up Chiefs legends Tanerau Latimer & Jarred Hoeata and what they've been teaching the boys. We got some player perspective from New Plymouth's Blair Murray & Hamilton's Mason Tupaea. And finally, the Strength & Conditioning coach Wally Rifle. For many of these athletes, it was their first taste of a professional environment. A big thank you to the Chiefs for allowing us in to camp!
Southland have named their 2019 Mitre 10 Cup squad and there are a few surprises, including Charles Alaimalo and Marty McKenzie (returning home) and two Aussies!
