Here’s Maori lad Hosea Gear of the All Blacks rugby football team. He is the second sibling in a family line of great footballers to wear the black jersey of the greatest rugby football team in the world.
Says the All Blacks website: “With his All Blacks selection Hosea Gear makes it a family double after brother Rico wore the black jersey in 2004.
The Gisborne Boys’ High School graduate shrugged off a series of hamstring injuries in 2008 to hit top form and break a 27-year-old record by scoring 14 tries for the Wellington Lions, making him the Air New Zealand Cup’s top try scorer.
Gear has played for New Zealand Maori since 2004, has represented New Zealand Under 21 and made his Rebel Sport Super 14 debut in 2004 for the Hurricanes.
His power and pace is a handful for any defence and he has become one of the deadliest finishers around.
Now… that’s what we’re talking about, when it comes to great footballers in the world. Kia ora brotha from Hollywood. I See You! :)
