Led by All Black
I have been very lucky in life that I have got to travel the world and see some amazing places in my job as a rugby player. However, my heart and feet have always been firmly rooted in the towering Southern Alps around Canterbury. I grew up in those hills and today I am just as happy in a 5,000 acre back country field as “on the field”. Yet playing for the All Blacks and the Crusaders has given me one thing I always carry, an incredible sense of pride in New Zealand. Monarch is a manifestation of that pride - it gives me the ability to do what I love, roaming the mountains and showing off “my home” to international travellers, sharing the same passions as I do for fine New Zealand cuisine, local wines, out of this world luxury lodges and mind blowing outdoor experiences.
