NZ Rugby World - - 2017 The Year In Review -

It’s not strictly fair to say that the ca­reer of Tyrel Lo­max had taken any par­tic­u­lar plunge. But the big prop was con­tracted to the Rebels and think­ing about throw­ing his lot in with the Wal­la­bies.

Thank­fully he had a change of heart in early Septem­ber when he signed with the High­landers for the 2019 cam­paign and then man­aged to get that brought for­ward by a year.

Once he was locked into the New Zealand sys­tem, the Maori All Blacks pounced and took him on tour to Canada and France.

He’s a big unit, only in his early twen­ties and, from start­ing the season as a fu­ture Wal­laby, he ended it as a fu­ture All Black.
