Israel Dagg: The face of determination
All Blacks fullback Israel Dagg's facial expressions show the passion, the power and the determination he gives to each and every one of his games.
The 24-year-old was born in Marton and attended Lindisfarne College in Hastings, playing for the Napier Pirates, and debuted for the All Blacks in June of 2010.
Some might say he looks a bit odd on the field some times, spending much of the game agape - but we say it's just Dagg embracing the game and giving it his all.
We've put together 15 of the best 'Dagg-faces' for your enjoyment.
