Hockey & Super Rugby

Last time I played hockey I was goalie and threw the stick at someone from my own team for saying something about one of my brothers. I wasn't allowed in the team after that.

The Black Sticks played Trinidad & Tobago and won 14-0.

Papa Greg, we need a real ball.

Hopes to be a Black Stick one day.

Super Rugby semi-finals tonight. Crusaders vs Sharks.
