Brooke made 58 test appearances for New Zealand during his outstanding international rugby career, while also appearing 42 times for the All-Blacks in non-international fixtures.

He captained the Auckland Blues to the Super 12 Championship in two successive years in 1996 and 1997, before arriving to the Premiership with Harlequins.

He left Quins in 2000 having scored five tries at the London-based side, before bringing his playing career to an end a year later.


On 15 July, Zinzan will appear at a pre-match lunch, where supporters will also be able to take part in a pre-match Q&A with the evergreen Kiwi.

He will then be on the touchline for 80 minutes of fun-filled action as we come together to support two amazing causes – Rock2Recovery and Rugby For Heroes.

To take part in the lunch and Q&A with Zinzan, please book a place in our pre-match hospitality by clicking here.
