“The highlight of the NZ tour without a doubt was the Rotorua leg, where we were hosted by Jim Love’s New Zealand Sports Academy. The program Jim put together with his team gave us exactly what we wanted, an insider’s look at high performance rugby training and development, complemented by exposure to the tribal culture and traditions of the Maori people”

“I spent three months at the NZSA and it was the best experience ever. If any rugby player wants to improve their skills, technique and fitness level this is the place to be. Living rugby is what it is all about, in a professional environment with support and guidance from the best coaches and performance trainers. The NZSA is based in Rotorua in the heart of the Bay of Plenty. There is a challenging rugby competition for every level. Being with the boys at the academy, I had a great time, training everyday and at night training with our clubs. In the weekend we came across each other in club rugby which made it even more exciting. The academy has their own teams too, training at the academy every day with the same guys made our team really strong and during my time at the academy, we hadn’t lost a game.”
