Dear Ardie,

CONGRATULATIONS ON CAPTAINING THE ALL BLACKS ON THE SPECIAL OCCASION OF THE 100th TEST MATCH AGAINST SOUTH AFRICA

On behalf of everyone at Wellington Rugby it gives me great pleasure to extend our sincerest congratulations on your captaincy of the All Blacks on the occasion of their 100th test match against South Africa.

Being selected for the All Blacks is a privilege very few experience, being selected as captain is an honour reserved for only the most worthy indeed.

Since I first met you in the U16 environment you have displayed the values that I am sure make your family extremely proud and which have led to the honour of leading the All Blacks on this historic occasion. Along with your Oriental Rongotai club, WRFU are proud of being a part of this journey and I know the whole of the Wellington Rugby community are thrilled for you.

We look forward to watching you play and wish you, and everyone involved in the game the best. Yours truly,

Russell Poole

Chairman, WRFU
