QUICK TAP: TONY BROWN NAMES STRONG SUNWOLVES SQUAD FOR 2019
From mental well-being and de-stressing, to money management and social media guidance and more, players are given the chance to learn, contribute and talk about topics that may affect them during their Super Rugby careers.
In total, there are 33 players who have signed New Zealand Super Rugby contracts for the first time in 2019.
Throughout the 2019 season, the Super Rugby NZ website and social media channels will keep a close eye on the progress of the ‘rookies’ and rank the top three rookies following each round.
A leader board will keep track of the leading rookies and a Super Rugby Rookie of the Year will be crowned at the end of the season as judged by Super Rugby writers.
