Forbes ready to support ABs

Stuff
Saturday, February 03, 2018

For the last decade and more DJ Forbes was the defining figure on the pitch for New Zealand's sevens team, and not just because of his distinctive shaved head and bushy beard.

A colossus as a leader, the forward made his international debut on the circuit back in 2006 and won legions of admirers for his bustling physicality and determined attitude which elevated those around him.

"Oh, I'll have itchy feet this weekend, for sure," Forbes tells Stuff, with a grin that masks the depth of his emotions.

"I'm confident that my body could have gone a few more seasons, but I have to tell myself that I am blessed that didn't have any major injuries and I can still run around."
