Southland calling: Hore

Former All Black hooker Andrew Hore is in line to come out of retirement in Southland Stags colours after being called up as an injury replacement.

The 35-year-old, who amassed 83 caps for New Zealand, called time on his career on a high after the game against Ireland in November last year.

But according to, he's set for a surprise comeback after Stags hooker Jason Rutledge suffered an injury, with Jamie Mackintosh putting in the call to his former Highlanders team-mate.
