Jarrad Hoeata was quietly happy when he heard the news he was the country's newest All Black. Hoeata was watching Kung Foo Panda at the cinema when his phone rang. "I couldn't really celebrate to loudly or anything like that so I just had to keep it under wraps but I had a big grin on my face that's for sure". The last 24 hours has seen media from all over the country knocking on Hoeata's door.
