As the All Blacks return home after the Rugby World Cup in Japan Ryan Bridge gets an exclusive interview with Hooker Dane Coles.

Coles tells the Magic Talk Drive host that it is, “good to be home”, the two joke with one another having both attended Paraparaumu College on the Kapiti Coast, “coming a long way”, but Coles insists that it’s an important part of who he is.

I reckon a big part of why I have achieved so much is remembering where I’m from and I try represent the Kapiti the best way that I can.

They moved on then to Dane’s emotional press conference following the loss of the All Blacks to the England team, he spoke of how supportive fans and family have been during what was a difficult moment.

Coles tells Ryan that his family with him during the World Cup was very special to him and that now that he is home he pans to decompress, relax and enjoy the Kiwi summer.
