the Wellington Under 16 prop, who spent much of last year injured.
[ST. PAT’S TOWN] The younger brother of Hurricanes utility Matt, Billy is another seriously talented prospect. He can play a number of backline positions but his best role is thought to be centre. This year he is being viewed as a potential captain, under the watchful gaze of father Phil who has been called on for coaching assistance. Billy’s work ethic – he is always doing extra after training – and composure set him apart. He’s also the goal-kicker and picked up the man of the match last year’s final after scoring two tries. Loose forward Kevin Fauatea is another in the ’watch this space’ category. Dubbed the ’next Jerry Collins’ by those in the know, Fauatea has a few rough edges but will be a powerful force up front.
