He’s one hell of a rugby player and one hell of a human being.”Despite injuring his arm in the first half, Taufua refused to buckle and kept playing for as long as possible before being ordered to exit the action.”He would live and die out there for the team, the province, ” Tasman captain Alex Ainley said in reference to Taufua.”And he had to be dragged off the field. That was what happened in the end, when the doctor pulled him off the park. I don’t think it was his say.”last_img read more
