Redemption: Zac scores his fourth try.
Hawke's Bay flyer Zac Guildford
put up his hand for a starting
spot in the All Blacks after
playing a starring role in their
big win against Canada.
The winger scored four of his
team's 12 tries as they over-ran
Canada 79-15 in front of more

Champions Trophy in Auckland.
The Hawke's Bay title and logo will appear on
the front of shirts worn by both teams throughout
the leadup to next year's Olympic Games in
The men-only Champions Trophy event, from
December 3 to 11, which is screened around the
world, was shifted to Auckland recently after
India was stripped of the hosting rights.
Hastings Mayor Lawrence Yule said no council

It's about what is possible when a community
comes together, how we can unite and use all our
resources, financial and intellectual, to support
our national team while also galvanising and sup-
