Biography

Andrew Hore started his rugby career in the South with Otago in 1998 so 2012 was a home coming for the ‘lad from the Maniototo’.  A World Cup winning All Black, Andrew Hore has played 72 test matches and 127 Super Rugby games.  An accurate line-out exponent and aggressive ruck and maul forward, Hore, when he joined the Highlanders, has added real metal to the forward platform.  Hore will lead a pack that includes Tony Woodcock, Brad Thorn and Jamie Mackintosh and his go-forward with ball in hand will set the benchmark for the Highlanders in 2013.
