Some things just get better with age! Fine wine, Sean Connery and now Andy ‘Angry’ Ellis. With over 150 Super Rugby caps, for the Crusaders, under his belt, the ever-green half-back is playing some of his best every rugby for a resurgent and free-flowing Crusaders team.
This season has seen all of his customary sharp skills and game reading ability to the fore, but so too a more abrasive, confrontational edge to his play, when he might have been expected to be mellowing!
The former Burnside High School student was unlucky not to add to his 28 All Blacks caps at the 2015 World Cup. When time is finally called on his illustrious career, though, the radio host, who is also an award-winning landscaper, is sure to have plenty to keep him busy and hopefully calm too.
