Nick Stratford

Nick was another player from the Hamilton Old Boys Rugby Club who played for the Hokkaido Barbarians in the 1996 season.
Nick was a very mobile hooker/prop with excellent lineout throwing ability.
Formed a strong front row that year with Hasegawa and Sekine where they dominated scrums in the local competition.
Returned to NZ after the 1996 season.

Deane Sadler

I was a Barbar way back when we only had 1 team and it was called the Vomits!

I was there as a student at Hokkaido University from 1985 until 1989.
On graduating from Hokudai, I joined Toshiba and had the good fortune to play for their rugby team for 8 years, culminating in winning the All Japan Championship in 1997.

I'm currently Director of MTV Ad Sales, Asia, so will probably stay in Japan for a couple more years. I was fortunate to be appointed as liaison to the All Blacks while they were in Tokyo.

John Sileli

Johnny played for the Barbarians for 4 seasons off and on, making a guest appearance when he was able to. This guest appearance would always scare the bejesus out of the opposition as Johhny was willing to try any method or tactic to score. Johnny must be praised for his imagination as a rugby player.
In the 1999 season John played regularly for the A team and was a key ball runner and defender.
Later on in his career, when his fitness levels dropped, he on one occassion took a banned substance just before kick off.
His work rate in that game was incredible, his ball carry count was in the 30s and his ruck tally higher. Had IRB rules being more lenient and he played his entire career at that speed it would be on the All Black homepage he`d be being recognised not the Barbarian one.
For his health and security of his family, John decided to not play under the influence thereafter.
