All Blacks in pink: Carter, Dagg have design off
One look from Richie McCaw was all it took to ensure no members of his forward pack would be spotted wearing pink at All Blacks training today. As part of a promotion from team kit sponsor adidas, Israel Dagg and Dan Carter each had the opportunity to design a one-off training strip for the All Blacks. Liam Messam said he and fellow flanker Victor Vito were set to have a gallop in the Westpac Stadium sun in pink before McCaw put a stop to that without even saying a word. "He didn't say, but he looked at me and Vic," Messam said. "Obviously pink looks good on the brown brothers and Richie sort of looked at us, so we knew better. "Just the look ... it was enough."
