He has followed a string of wins this season with another success at the weekend, winning the Otago open shearing title and with it the cup he donated for the event about 10 years ago.

It gives him 633 open final wins - the first having been the Otago title in 1983.

David Fagan is planning to retire after the New Zealand Championships in Te Kuiti in April.
