Wilson walks into a bouncer
February 22, 2000
All Black winger Jeff Wilson's decision to revive his cricketing career has proved very unpopular with the Otago Highlanders' hierarchy.
Wilson, who was spectating at the weekend's match between Otago and Auckland, found himself fielding for the Auckland side when they discovered thay were a player short. Wilson is , of course , a very talented cricketer, having represented New Zealand in ODIs and having a half century to his name.His bosses at the Highlanders, however, were not amused , fearing that an injury could have had dire consequences for his rugby season.
