As part of the Hulley Memorial Lecture Series we had the pleasure of welcoming All Blacks Legend Zinzan Brooke.
Zinzan played 58 tests for New Zealand, captained the Auckland Blues to Super 12 Championships in 1996 and 1997 and was a leading light in Auckland’s dominance in the National Provincial Championship during the late 1980s and 1990s. He scored 17 tries in test matches, then a world record for a forward. Zinzan played in three World Cups and was a member of the All Blacks squad which won the inaugural Rugby World Cup in 1987.
In this interview he reminisces about his childhood, his rugby career and gives his opinions on the current status of the game. He also gave a demonstration of the Haka to some willing volunteers.
