It was a week to remember for Tasman Rugby. The highlight had to be the Test debut for Liam Squire (All Black # 1151), our region’s first locally developed All Black from the Tasman Makos era. Liam enjoyed 25 minutes of quality rugby including strong carries and hard work at the breakdown. His performance was rewarded with excellent player ratings by the press, and very positive feedback from the men who count; the selectors. A bright future in black seems assured.
