NZ Rugby World - First XV - - WELLINGTON -

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. [St. Pat’s Sil­ver­stream] [Scots Col­lege] [St. Pat’s Sil­ver­stream]
