One of the best ever New Zealand signings was Grahame West for Wigan, top class player but also off the field one of the best ambassadors the game of rugby league has ever had, a real gentleman who has time for everyone, i remember him at a school event in Ince, Wigan back in the eighties, Westy was wearing a nice clean grey suit when he arrived, when he went home it was ruined he allowed the kids to use him like a climbing frame, the suit was covered in muddy footprints the kids loved him, Christmas 2012 Westy and Andy Gregory dressed up as elves at St.Pats kids Christmas party, probably the tallest elf ever.

Stacey Jones has gone well under the radar here, one of my favourite NZers ever.

For Wire (SL era):

Toa Kohe-Love
Nigel Vagana
Louis Anderson
Richard Henare (one season only mind)

All left me with fine memories. Honorable mentions: Vinnie Anderson, Logan Swann, David Kidwell (ok bad memories in his case!)

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

I take it you're a cas fan? What a great side caselford had in the early 90's.


Yep. Kemp was great to have in any side and we had a great mix. Lee Crooks was a great buy for us when he still had loads to offer.
We should have picked up a few more pots in that period.

Not quite in the spirit of the thread, but one of the biggest Kiwi disappointments must be David Vaealiki.

 

Big reputation on his arrival and, other than a length of the fielder against Saints, did nothing.

Kevin iro was always a favourite of mine and Vila matautia was one tough mother.

Going back to the early days of SL Freddie Tuilagi and Mike Umaga at Halifax were good.  Both took some stopping!

Fair point.

 

Thinking about it I think Freddie was signed after playing for Samoa in the 1991 RUWC.  Mike Umaga though was I believe a New Zealander of Samoan decent,

There's been some damn good Samoans as well, Apollo perelini and Maurie fa'asavalu as well as those you mentioned.

Some parents can be very cruel.

                Lee Radford rang me the other week....I knew Hull FC were a bit desperate but I had no idea it had got that bad.
