Bromwich ready to step up as Kiwi captain

  • Ahitereiria

Kua rite anō te papa mō te tukinga riiki whakamahara i ngā hōia ANZAC ki Newcastle, Ahitereiria a te pō nei. He kakari whai mana nui anō mō tētahi kanohi Māori. Kua riro mā Jesse Bromwich te tūranga kāpene e kawe i tēnei wiki. Nā, i tēnei tōna tukinga tekau mā waru i te kapa Kiwi - ka noho mātārae tonu i aua tākaro katoa.

Ko te ika haehae kūpenga hou o te ranga. He māmā noaiho tana whai i tana turanga hōu

“Bit more talking in the team meetings, and bit more leadership in trainings”, says Kiwi captain Jesse Bromwich”, hei tā te Kāpene o te Kapa Kiwi a Jesse Bromwich.

Koia rā ngā haepapa hou kua tau ki runga i te kāpene hou o te kapa Kiwi tonu, arā, mā Jesse Bromwich e ārahi i te tira e meinga nei Te Iwi Kiwi ki te mura o te ahi, i tēnei tōna kakari tekau mā waru i te pōraka pango.

Hei tā Bromwich, “Been trying to work on that at the Storm, coming in to the Kiwis camp and being the Captain has been good for me, and it's time to step up.”

Ā, inā rā te whai mana o tōna hoariri kāpene a te pō nei. A Cam Smith kei te ārahi i te kapa Kangarū, he ika-a-Whiro nō te kapa Storm hoki, engari a te pō nei - he pakanga nui kei te haere.

“I will be stealing a few things, I’m my own man and I'll be looking at being myself and leading through my own actions”, hei tā Bromwich.

Although the battle lines have already been drawn, his NRL teammate is happy about his latest achievement.

E ai ki te Kāpene, Kāngārū a Cameron Smith, ‘His appointment as captain, I think it's very well deserved, we found out after the game when we were on the Gold Coast and all the boys were very pleased for him.”

Engari anō te whakahoahoa, hei tā te kaiako matua a Stephen Kearney kotahi tonu te whāinga

“Last year, we were the underdogs, and the year before that, so again it's of no concern to us it’s about us preparing ourselves as best as we can.”

Ka kiki pōro i te tākaro whakamahara i ngā ANZAC hei te haurua i te iwa a te pō nei
