“It’s a younger team as far as the rugby is concerned, except for Tim Horan,” said Peter Psaltis. “Is he your elder statemsan in the group?”
“Oh he definitely is. He’s actually obviously been doing the commentary for a long time,” said Turinui.
“We’ve got some elder statesmen and then Drew Mitchell, who refuses to wear leather shoes.
“He wants to be the cool, cutting edge guy. He’s probably our Snapchat, TikTok man.
“We can cross all generations, hopefully, at the moment.”
Super Rugby kicks off this weekend on Channel 9 and Stan sport.
