All Blacks' Sam Cane joins King Country Rams for a match

From Checkpoint, 5:50 pm on 8 October 2021

It's a rare throwback to the good old days of amateur rugby. Tomorrow afternoon in Taupō, All Blacks captain Sam Cane will team up with fencers, farmers and forestry workers when he turns out for the King Country provincial side.

With his regular provincial side Bay of Plenty on a bye week, Cane was looking for a team who could take him as he returns from a long injury layoff and prepares to make his return to the international arena.

As Clay Wilson explains, the team known in rugby circles as 'The Rams' were only too happy to help.
