Nonu at an all time low in rugby

Ma’a Nonu has said that he has never felt so low during his rugby career and he is desperate to revive the Hurricanes and his own form.

Nonu’s Hurricanes are tweflth on the Super Rugby standings with twelve points from six matches.

Worryingly the Hurricanes could have been lower had their second round match against the Crusaders gone ahead as they picked up two points from the match and form suggests they could have come out with nothing from the match.

Nonu sat dejected under McLean Park’s main stand following his side’s 26-14 loss to the Bulls wondering how to turn things around.

“I can’t speak for anyone else, but I’m probably the lowest I’ve been in rugby,” the 28-year-old said after the match.

“I don’t know, I just feel terrible to be honest. From a team perspective I think the boys played well.”

“The loosies tonight were great, the forward pack, but I’ll put my hand up – I didn’t feel like I did much,” he told the Dominion Post.

The Hurricanes players and the coaches felt that they had at least restored some degree of pride in the jersey, Nonu could not see the bright side of yet another loss.

“I don’t want to say anything against anyone. I believe in this team, I love (this team). I can’t blame anyone else, but I’m just not getting any space.”

With Crusaders centre Sonny Bill Williams occupying the headlines Nonu is concerned that his own form would affect his chances of World Cup selection and said,”I’m so desperate (to turn things around) it’s not funny.”
