WE CAUGHT UP WITH SOME OF THE HIGHLANDERS TO GET TO KNOW A bit MORE ABOUT THEM, AND WHAT MAKES PLAYING FOR THE HIGHLANDERS SO SPECIAL.

Highlanders

 

rugby idol growing up?

A: I'd probably say Jonah. I used to run around as a little kid yelling out 'Jonah', and then run over someone.

J: Schalk Burger. Legend. He just had plenty of passion, body on the line sort of stuff.

M: Growing up it would have been Tony Brown - I actually looked a bit like him as well. I had curly blonde hair back in the day... and he's from home so yeah Browny was the one I looked up to. 

 

favourite movie or tv show?

A: I like Mark Wahlberg so would have to say Shooter, and if I had to pick another one I'd go Batman when Heath Ledger plays the Joker - because I do a good joker.

J: Wedding Crashers for sure, great comedy on a Sunday. I quite like Vikings as a series and Game of Thrones.

 

One piece of advice you've been given thats stuck with you

J: Use your manners.

M: My mum used to tell me to stop feeling sorry for myself, I've always remembered that.

 

WHAT COMES TO MIND WHEN YOU THINK OF HIGHLANDERS HERITAGE?

M: Just a community franchise. We're in such a small city of Dunedin that everyone belongs, even if you take off out of town everyone loves a Highlander.

J: Great fans. We never played at Carisbrook but if you look back then the embankment was going off, the students were right into their work like they do in the zoo now... it's just all on.

A: The community is like a tight family so that's pretty cool. Everyone gets right into it.
