Five players to watch: Bay Of Plenty
Tuesday, August 7, 2018 allblacks.com
The former New Zealand Under-20s flanker was dynamic when given opportunities with the Chiefs in Investec Super Rugby this year and with the quality of players around in the loose for Bay of Plenty there could be some tough moments for opponents during the season. A speedy player around the field, Karpik belies his smaller stature with a willingness to compete at the breakdown and defensively.
Provided with more opportunities than he might have been expecting for the Chiefs due to injury to others this year, Polwart made good ground in his development as a hooker. Apart from his core responsibilities in scrummaging and lineout work, he is a handy contributor around the field with mobility that is invaluable in support play.
