Kirvan supports Roger Tuyvas-Shek for debut test before returning to Sydney


Tuivas-Shek missed six games in the middle of the season due to a shoulder injury, but Kirvan – who played 63 times for the All Blacks and two seasons with the Auckland Warriors (1995-96) – said RTS’s “work ethic” after the transition struck all right owners rugby in new zealand.

When Tuyvas-Shek makes his debut against Ireland in July, he will become only the sixth player since rugby became a professional in 1996, and won the New Zealand test teams in both codes after John Tim, Matthew Ridge, Mark Ellis, Craig Ines and Sonny Bill Williams.

“And there are only 18 test matches left, right before the World Cup?” Said Kirvan.

“So it will be in favor of (Tuyvas-Shek) because you have to pick it now, you have to play with it. You should know at this time next year … that it will be good enough for this level. I am convinced he will. He brought to the Blues a really good work ethic and very good humility.

“You may know he’s talented and has great legs, but if he has a great work ethic and a desire to be the best in the world, you know what you can work with, you know you don’t get a superstar who thinks their shit doesn’t stinks.

“You get a modest guy who will listen to the coaching staff and wants to get better. It is very good to work with them. “

Kirvan, a former Blues coach, predicted that the “exhausted” Auckland team would rest a decent part of their striker, but send RTS and Barrett to a clash with the Gates, given that both have had breaks this season.

The Waratahs have a distant chance of climbing into the top four with a win in the final round, but they also need Fiji Drew to beat the Hurricanes, and Force who is out of shape to beat the Chiefs.

So the focus of the team, according to forwards coach Pauli Taumopo, is more than to turn a strong game against the Blues to ensure they come out in the first week of the final with momentum.

“When we lost to Hurricanes, DC (coach Darren Coleman) made a presentation on what the Highlanders and the Blues mean, and if there’s anyone who knows the finale, it’s him,” he said. Taumpo.

“He led us forward to the quarter-final week and talked about how important the confidence that led to this week was. It’s important that you show up on Monday and have confidence. He did not say win. He just said we have to play well, so on Monday we will definitely reach this quarterfinal. “
