Jack Stratton

Jack Stratton has followed the unusual path of being called into a Super Rugby squad before playing for a national provincial team.  When the Crusaders lost halfback Willi Heinz to a broken leg at the start of the 2015 season, and with Andy Ellis yet to return from his contract in Japan, Stratton received the SOS call from the Crusaders coaches and literally went from the farm to the footy field to join the training squad.  He wasn't required to play any games, but gained some useful experience training with the Super Rugby team.
That opportunity, plus his impressive performances for the Canterbury Colts and Lincoln University, and the NZ Universities side saw him named in the Canterbury squad for the first time last season.
