All Blacks skipper Read to undergo back surgery

All Blacks skipper Read to undergo back surgery”

The Black Ferns captain Fiao'o Fa'amausili and coach Glenn Moore with the side's team of the year award.

His dream was to play for the Fiji Airways Men's 7s team but All Blacks and Crusaders winger Seta Tamanivalu has admitted it is tougher to get into the national sevens team when competing with other Fijians especially his family members.

Tamanivalu says he is honored to be part of it and believes that this is big for local rugby fans as most of the people in New Zealand have not seen the trophy.

"As a kid I watched the 2010 Black Ferns women's team win their world cup against England and I remember screaming at the TV with my mum through the night and.(now) to be playing alongside some of those girls is really special", she said.

Read struggled with injury in 2017, but returned to play a starring role in the British and Irish Lions series before the number eight helped New Zealand to another unbeaten Rugby Championship campaign.
