Ross Wright has played for Wellsford, Northland, the Blues and was a Maori All Black.
Wellsford’s Ross Wright is set to play his hundredth game for Northland during the 2020 Mitre 10 Cup season.
Covid Alert Level restrictions permitting, Wright’s hundredth game is scheduled to take place in Auckland against Counties Manukau on September 27.
Whenever the match takes place, Wellsford Rugby Club is inviting fans to attend dressed up as the man himself.
“That means mullets, beards, strapping, Wellsford gear, Northland signs or anything you think of when you think of Ross,” the club says.
“Let’s fill the crowd with Rosses.”
As Mahurangi Matters went to press, Northland’s Mitre 10 Cup provincial rugby season was due to start on September 13 with a home game in Whangarei against Manawatu.
New Zealand Rugby has announced the game will go ahead with a reduced crowd.
Mitre 10 Cup matches will also air live on Sky TV.
