As the All Blacks get nearer their goal of winning the Rugby World Cup, we continue to select our own team, composed entirely of those who played for Wairarapa, Bush, or Wairarapa-Bush.

 For the powerhouse of the scrum we have chosen Ian Harvey as one of our locks, a man whose general sporting prowess is revealed by his first representing Wairarapa at full back.  His athleticism could not be doubted, but he was unlucky with illness, and would have played many more than his 18 matches if his health had been better.  He played on the 1924 “Invincibles” tour and was also a national representative in 1926 and 1928.
