No potential? Why did they recruit him then
Then CEO, Ian Robson had a hard on for signing All Blacks. Probably still riding cloud 9 after all the crazy press he got when he signed John Kirwan. Was massive news in those days as well as Marc Ellis and Frano Botica. Even fought pretty hard to get Matthew Ridge in those early days...
