After a hiatus ....

Having taken a break from posting, we return to pick up in the back of our forward pack.
There have been many Wairarapa loose forwards to make the All Black team – perhaps a reflection of our rural past.  One who fully deserves his place on the side of the scrum is the Bush Union’s only All Black, Athol Mahoney.  Playing for the Konini club, Mahoney represented New Zealand 26 times between 1929 and 1936, usually playing at the back of the scrum, although here we have him at blindside flanker.
