And what they said.......
"And Macky Singh, the NZU coach, has given me a lot of confidence as well, on and off the field. Being named vice-captain of the 2005 Universities squad is a huge boost for me from a coach to whom you feel comfortable talking about anything - he knows when to put the pressure on, and when to ease off".

"Another key contributor to my career has been former NZ Universities coach Macky Singh - around the ages of 10 - 13, he was a very crucial coach in my development".
