Joe McDonnell

Joe McDonnell's 2005 year was hampered by injury, meaning the experienced prop will be eager to get back into playing mode in 2006. The former All Black and New Zealand Maori representative has taken on more of a leadership role in recent seasons and will do so again in 2006. He is a powerful scrummager with added ball skills and mobility. In 2002 he was included in the All Blacks squad and scored a try on debut against Italy. He is also a former rugby league representative for Otago.
