NZ Rugby World



Strengths: Has tremendous experience having played for the Blues and then in France and most recently with Edinburgh.

Always had the temperamen­t for the big occasion and plays his best rugby in the biggest games. He’s tidy and confident – comfortabl­e certainly bossing those around him as the position requires.

Weaknesses: Has been around a long time and has never been able to convince he’s ready for the next level. Hickey is a great club man – the sort of player coaches want around as he has a good attitude, experience and a desire to work hard. But ultimately his skill-set is short of where it needs to be.

Goal Kicking: Excellent.

Is he a future All Black? No.
