“The Bruce Pulman Park experience was terrific,” All Blacks manager Darren Shand told Counties Sports Hub. “One of the most telling things for me was from Ethan Blackadder – a first-time All Black. He loved the experience of having four players together in a room.  Usually, we have players on their own or with one other player at most so this was a great bonding experience for him and the rest of the team.  The Pulman Lodge was great and ideally located so there was no real bus ride from our accommodation to the training field.
