After an excellent semi-final round of Super Rugby this past weekend, I have dedicated the Player of the Week award to a man who I consider to be one of the greats of the game. Crusaders lock Brad Thorn is one of those rare talents who always make an impact. Having switched between league and union several times over the years, Thorn has won both the NRL and Super Rugby titles. He is also a regular in the All Blacks squad and should be a fixture in the upcoming Rugby World Cup.
Super Rugby Team: Crusaders
National Team: All Blacks
