NZ Rugby World
The Crusaders lock hasn't played much in 2020 because of injury but he had a solid body of work behind him prior to this year.
He's rugged and physical which everyone likes and he throws himself about.
Has the height to win lineout ball and the presence to clear out rucks.
Was able to show all that again this year on limited game time and his attitude won him selection as much as anything else.
Is expected to be fit enough to be available for the Rugby Championship.
