Theyre definitely going to be pushing at the top. All the New Zealand provinces are strong this year. Its going to be really interesting. Jimmy Gopperth Last year was the first where they had a really consistent year, only to lose at the last hurdle. I think they can build on that.Theyve got some really great coaches in Chris Boyd and John Plumtree. I had the pleasure of working with them for a number of years in Wellington. They install a really good belief in the squad and theyll use last year as fuel in looking to push on.

He was unlucky with his injury before the World Cup. Beauden Barrett had a great World Cup and it was a great way to finish with a try in the final.Lima Sopoaga came on the scene last year, on the back of the Highlanders doing really well.
