    I’ve been a Highlander’s enthusiast for a few years now. The fact I struggle to feel any ties to any Australian side meant my alligences have fallen to the Highlanders over the past 2-3 years.

    They did the right thing about 2 years ago in clearing out all the dead wood and replacing them with young players with an eye for the future and the fruit is becoming ripe for picking!

    Bowden is a fantastic talent and I think he could be a bolter for the All Blacks this year or if not sometime in the hopefully not too distant future. Pity he is heading back to Auckland though! Michael Witt is also an excellent player and a fine replacement who will thrive in the Air New Zealand Cup with Otago and 2010 Super 14.
