All Blacks fan wears his colours proudly


Travelling along Tahunanui Drive, it’s hard to miss Gary’s Barker’s black and white sign supporting the All Blacks.

Gary is Tahunanui’s biggest All Blacks fan and the big sign outside his house proves it.

“I’ve never missed a live All Blacks game,” says Gary.

“Everyone thinks I’m a bit obsessed, but rugby is a healthy addiction.”

Gary made the sign for the New Zealand Rugby World Cup four years ago.

“I made it out of ply and had a friend in Auckland send me down some reflective letters.”

Gary says almost everyone was tooting as he put it up on Saturday morning.

“I thought it should definitely go up for the semi-finals.”

“We get lots of people tooting and cheering as they drive by.”
