Player: "What bloody game are you watching ref?"

Ref: "The one where you've had three shots and haven't hit the target."

Had so much fun doing this interview a few years back - the tangents were just magic :)

Luckily that that passer-by stopped and rendered assistance like he did. Whether or not you like Rufer his playing record is still way up there and to be respected. I wish him a speedy recovery.

The irony is not lost though. Eats healthily, doesn't drink or smoke, exercises and has a heart attack. Half the YF are obese, drink, don't really exercise and are running on all cylinders.

Had an interview on Newshub last night about his thoughts on Rudan and the CCM game. Thankfully he looks as healthy as can be (apart from a little grey on the top!) Pleased to see a quick recovery and I wish the best for him in the future

Small interview he did with a German webby post heart attack and during the Nix/CCM game. Nothing too interesting mentioned in the article other than he helps scout for Werder Bremen.

Glad he's fine. 

Have read on here he can be a bit of a bible basher but not once during this experience have I seen him mention it

I remember when he was coaching the Kingz and he brought them to Whakatane for an open training session. He sat all the kids down to talk to them. He was inspirational. He also talked to the kids as the players went through some shooting drills, describing the players, their skills and hyping the kids up to believe they could be the best in the world too. He was great.

Random question brought on by this, while I was in a bookshop today. Was an autobiography/biography about Wynton ever written?

No.  One was in the pipeline for a while (he mentioned it whenever asked) but it never happened.
