Doug Rollerson

Rollerson was one of the most exciting backs to pull on a Manawatu jersey. He will forever hold a place in Manawatu rugby folklore thanks to his shaky dropped goal that won Manawatu the Ranfurly Shield against Auckland in 1976. Rollerson played 91 games for Manawatu racking iup 515 points.
