Josh Bradnock

Josh Bradnock

A stalwart of Manawatu and University rugby, Josh Bradnock is one of the strongest flankers from New Zealand rugby. 50 games for the Turbos and 100 for his club, University, Bradnock has drawn comparisons to All Blacks great, Richie McCaw in his ability to turn the ball over in the ruck. Bradnock captained the Turbos in numerous games and featured in the 2012 Hurricanes squad. Such was the calibre of Bradnock that he would have played many Super games if his career was not lost to multiple tendon injuries.
