Ma’a Nonu Called Best Player in Super Rugby

Hurricanes player “Ma’a Nonu has been described as a player without peer in Super Rugby this year”, writes the Daily Mail.

“I haven’t seen, in my analysis, somebody who’s played consistently as well as him in Super Rugby this year”, said Chris Boyd , Hurricanes coach.

“We’re delighted that he’s here and playing so well.”

Nonu’s form has been close to the best of his 14-season professional career, according to Super Rugby leaders and has been crucial to the Hurricanes success this season.

His 122 matches for the Hurricanes equal the team’s record for caps held by former All Blacks captain Tana Umaga.

“He ran with typical vigour and tackled ferociously in the heart of a defiant team defensive display”, writes the Daily Mail.

Ma’a Nonu is a professional New Zealand rugby union player, who plays for the All Blacks, the Hurricanes in Super Rugby and the Wellington Lions in the ITM Cup. Nonu also played for the Auckland Blues and Otago Highlanders.
