Hore’s short retirement
Former All Black and Maniototo rugby star Andrew Hore flew to France last week to trial for the Toulon rugby team. If he joined the club he would join former All Blacks Carl Hayman, Ali Williams and Chris Masoe. He has also been named in the World XV squad to take on the Springboks in Cape Town in early June. Hore announced his retirement in November last year.
