Taylor and Cribb on the move
November 7, 1999
Two of the recent New Zealand Provincial Championship's best players, Glenn Taylor and Ron Cribb look certain to be on the move before the start of next year's Super 12 series.
Of even greater significance is the likelihood that Cribb, North Harbour's outstanding No 8, is very likely to play for the Canterbury Crusaders in the Super 12 even though he too plays within the catchment of the Blues. Cribb is one of several No 8s in New Zealand who are believed to be able to offer the bulky, aggressive, powerful driving play off the back of the scrum which is so missing with Taine Randell.
