All Black ad­mir­ers meet idols

Matamata Chronicle - - Front Page -

Mata­mata All Blacks fans turned out in force to catch a glimpse of four of their idols.

All Blacks Ju­lian Savea, Owen Franks, T J Per­e­nara and Jeremy Thrush made a fly­ing visit to Mata­mata where they vis­ited Hob­biton, held a Q& A ses­sion with rugby play­ers at Mata­mata Col­lege and dropped into United Mata­mata Sports Club for an au­to­graph ses­sion.

Dur­ing the Q&A ses­sion at Mata­mata Col­lege the group of rugby su­per stars were quite can­did about life as an All Black and how they had made it that far.

Laugh­ter erupted when one stu­dent asked if be­ing an All Black ‘‘helped pull in the girls’’.

Hun­dreds lined up at Bed­ford Park to have me­mora­bilia signed.
