Brad Thorn gives boost to his former club after his coaching campaign with Reds ends
The ageless wonder that is Brad Thorn can't help but lace up his boots and this week it was to the benefit of the Taieri premier two team in Otago club rugby.
The 42-year-old former All Blacks lock, who is based in Australia, provided a big boost for his former club's premier two team, who play in the Otago Metropolitan premier two competition, as they romped home to a 62-7 win over Zingari.
It was the side's sixth win in 13 games this year.
Thorn was in Dunedin in his role as an assistant coach with the Queensland Reds in their final match of the season against the Highlanders.
He was keen to have a trot for the club, whose premier one team was on a bye.
After watching his Reds slump to a 40-17 loss on Friday night, picking up a big win with Taieri should mean for a happier end to the season for Thorn.
