Frank Bunce 🇳🇿 | Episode 3

Published on Oct 01, 2020 by William Webb Ellis

Hosts Dallen Stanford & Robin MacDowell are joined by All Black legend Frank Bunce for #RugbyHive Episode 3.

Bunce represented Western Samoa at the 1991 Rugby World Cup, helping the pacific island nation record its best showing on the world stage. He would go on to represent the All Blacks 55 times from 1992-1997. His partnership in the midfield with Walter Little still ranks amongst the best center combinations that the game has produced. Bunce won the British & Irish Lions Series in 1993, Tri Nations in 1996 and 1997, and played in the 1995 Rugby World Cup final against South Africa. Upon retiring he was the most capped center in New Zealand’s history, scoring 20 tries for the All Blacks. Bunce reflects on his journey representing two different countries, the players that made both nations so powerful, and the way the game was back in his day. What was the historic 1995 Rugby World Cup final like? Best opposition centers ever faced? Favorite team mates of all-time? Advice for young rugby players? We cover all these topics including his involvement in youth development and creating opportunities through rugby in various communities.
