Since the world cup squad
announcement last Wednesday, Aaron Smith hasn’t been seen
with the All Blacks. He had a good reason for his absence – the Ngati Kahungunu man
became a dad last week. But as Irena Smith reports,
the veteran halfback rejoined. The team today for training ahead
of the match against Tonga and was overjoyed
to share his story of being a dad. Focused on what’s ahead of him,
Aaron Smith’s world has changed. He’s the most capped All Black
fly-half and he says he has also matured a lot when it comes playing his role
in the team and getting the most out
of that role. An example maybe to Josh Ioane who has been called
into the team this week with a chance of getting a game. The Te Rarawa man
got the call-up as cover when Richie Mou’unga got injured. Assistant coach says no matter what, the young first five is gaining
knowledge that will be valuable. We will see on Thursday
when the All Blacks team is named for their last match
ahead of the Rugby World Cup. Irena Smith, Te Karere.
