Meanwhile the next wave
of potential All Blacks are on the other side of the world
defending their u20 world title. They’ve started well –
thrashing Georgia by over 50 points – but this weekend they face
a much sterner challenge in the form of the Fighting Irish. Te Okiwa McLean spoke to a couple
of the players from their base in England. Yesterday the ‘Baby Blacks’
thrashed Georgia 55-0. Leni Apisai of Ngati Awa and Samoan
descent is a debutant to the squad, he is also captain of this side. He says this is
a huge honour for himself. 19-year-old Isaia Walker-Leawere
of Ngati Porou and Fijian descent is also a debutant to the squad. According to Walker-Leawere, if it weren’t for his father,
he wouldn’t be where he is today. Captain Apisai’s main hope is that the team sticks
to their game and structure. For now, the Baby Blacks
will gear up for their clash
against Ireland this Sunday. Te Okiwa McLean, Te Karere.
