Our very own Warwick (Wizz) Lahmert has been selected the Dubai and Port Elizabeth legs of the IRB 7s circuit. We had the opportunity to catch up with Wizz prior to the Dubai leg of the IRB 7s cirucit.
How is camp going?
Camp is good. Just finished gym session and now about todo some outfitting which is a bit of fun!!
Is this camp harder than the previous one?
Yeah this camp has been alot harder to the previous. alot more physical as its pretty much all ITM cup players, so the body took a bit of a beating.
Have you made any new mates?
A lot of new mates, the team is very close because its not as big as a 15s team so its alot easier to get to know everyone.
Who would you get on the best with?
All the boys are awesome, I get on well with all of them.
What was your reaction when you found out that you made the next 2 legs?
I was stoked when I found out I made the team, heart wouldnt stop racing. It was intense and emotional.
What’s been the best moment/s for you on camp?
Best moment would have to be being named in the team.
Anything else you would like to mention?
Just thanks to all my famiy, friends and my partner. I would never have got this without them. They have been a huge inspiration to me, love them all. Also Waikanae RFC for believing in me as a young fella as well as my coaches. Thanks to the HKRFU for all their support.
Cheers Nua, Wizz
