We also have All Blacks flyer Israel Dagg wearing Adizero RS7′s, South African number 10 Morne Steyn kicking in a pair of Nike Mercurial Boots and Full Back Martin Rodriquez of Argentina taking on Wales in his Nike CTR 360′s.

23 year old Dagg shall be hoping that his performance against South Africa at the weekend is enough to get him in to New Zealands 30 man squad for the Rugby World Cup. Dagg played at full back on Saturday although he is comfortable on the wing which should give him an advantage over other players hoping to make the final cut.
