This week we’re showcasing the best of the Condor 7s, the New Zealand secondary schools national Sevens competition.
First up – Taufu Funaki of Sacred Heart College, Auckland. Funaki lit up the tournament with explosive footwork coming off the bench for Sacred Heart. Funaki had one of the best steps going around, easily beating the first defender on many occasions, helping Sacred Heart into the quarterfinals of the Cup before elimination by Napier Boys.
Funaki was a Blues u18 representative in the fifteen man code and became the first choice halfback for the infamous New Zealand schoolboy side that toured Australia.
