Frano Botica, All Blacks Star On Life, Rugby, Women & Hair!

WASHINGTON, D.C.  – The rugby big shots keep flattering  us as Rugby Legend Frano Botica sat with our Johnathan Wicklow Barberie. Like the others that have come on camera with him,  Botica  let  his hair down on Rugby Wrap Up and the All-World, All-Things-Rugby star does not disappoint.

Frano played domestic club Rugby Union for North Harbour and Llanelli Scarlets  and spent a period in France. Botica also played RugbyLeague for Wigan Warriors and Castleford Tigers.

With the Ambassador’s Shield as their mutual reason for being in the USA’s capital, JWB was able to commandeer this exclusive with the one and only Mr. Frano Botica.

As you can tell, Frano Botica is a Kiwi through and through. Despite his great achievements on the pitch, including a Rugby World Cup appearance for Croatia, he remains humble.

Please feel free to comment and pass this around to your mates and check out the on camera interviews with fellow All Blacks John Kirwan, Michael Jones, Terry Wright and Todd Blackadder.

    Love the Ambassador’s Shield event! Dragged some college football mates to Trinity U back in ’09 for it. NZL kicked our “all-star’s” asses of course, but it was a SERIOUS Sunday Funday all the same!..
    PS-I hate the hair, JWB. The bald ‘n bold look works better for you. 😉
