Ryan Crotty

NZ Rugby World - - 2017 The Year In Review -

What a rock solid player and all round good guy. Crotty has be­come one of the stars of the All Blacks and he’s done it the old fash­ioned way – which is through hard work, con­sis­tency, re­fusal to get car­ried away with him­self and a re­lent­less de­sire to get bet­ter.

He’s hum­ble, ar­tic­u­late, com­posed and now he’s also world class. He’s of­ten been de­scribed as vanilla, not as a com­pli­ment how­ever. But now every­one has re­mem­bered that vanilla is a classic that has stood the test of time.
