In 2008 Aaron Cruden was diagnosed with cancer. After the devastating diagnosis the promising out-half had to undergo surgery and intensive chemotherapy, putting a sudden halt to one of New Zealand’s hottest prospects.
Three years later after battling the disease and going into remission he found himself captaining the ‘Baby Blacks’ in the Junior World Cup Final. He is now very much an integral part of the All-Blacks set-up and continues to improve and impress with many touting him as Dan Carters successor.
Truly inspirational stuff. CrudenLAD
