Joseph Romanos ranks NZ's top athletes since 1970

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:39 pm on 7 May 2018

Super Rugby may be in for a big overhaul if reports out of Wales are true. It's been suggested South African teams are looking to swap the Australian competition for a European one. 

With what that could mean we thought we'd talk to sports commentator, Joseph Romanos, who has this weekend been ranking his favourite Kiwi sportsmen and women over the last few decades.

Here are his lists:

Top 12 women: Dame Valerie Adams, Erin Baker, Caroline and Georgina Evers-Swindell, Sarah Ulmer, Susan Devoy, Lisa Carrington, Lydia Ko, Farah Palmer, Annelise Coberger, Debbie Hockley, Portia Woodman, Sandra Edge.

Top 12 men: John Walker, Sir Richard Hadlee, Richie McCaw, Danyon Loader, Hamish Bond and Eric Murray, Sir Russell Coutts, Sir Mark Todd, Jonah Lomu, Mahe Drysdale, Ian Ferguson, Mark Sorenson, Brendon McCullum.
