Sean Polwart has earned selection to the Maori All Blacks for the first time with compelling performances for his Auckland ITM Cup side that have showcased his work ethic, skills in and after the tackle and great team-focused attitude.
Polwart is one of several members in this squad that won the Junior World Championships with the New Zealand Under 20 team in 2010 and the hard-working loose forward was a key member of the University team that won the Gallaher Shield in 2014. He was part of the Blues in 2013 before working with the Chiefs in 2014 and signed with the Dave Rennie-led side for 2015.
