Bryn Templeman has returned to Kia Toa after the best part of a year in Germany playing in their national league, the Rugby-Bundesliga. The gig opened up Europe for him and partner Kylie Clifford. Just before they came home last week they toured 12 countries in 26 days.
His only expense while there was food and he found living in Germany far cheaper than in New Zealand. Templeman has had a month off since playing in the Geman final where home team Heidelberg beat his TV Pforzheim , in a game which was obviously all attack.
TVP have lost three of their past four finals to Heidelberg. Nothing has changed for the man we dubbed the world's fastest hooker. He still has his mullet haircut, even if he was given grief about it in Germany. He still harbours Manawatu rep ambitions too, in rugby and cricket. That would have happened last Saturday had Kia Toa's game against Feilding not been washed out. In the meantime he is working for Carl Izatt's landscaping business until he find a job in which he can use his sport and exercise degree.
The year-old has played in four such finals and has won three. In Germany, he played in all but one of TVP's 20 games. They seldom played more than three games in a row because when the German sevens or national team was playing, the competition took a week off. Each team's playing 22 must contain 10 German players. Heidelberg has a South African coach and plenty of South African players, some of whom play for Germany having been there for three or four years.
Dan has returned to Wanganui too play for Marist and to chase a berth in the Heartland rep team. TVP was in the village of Pforzheim, a "village" of ,, 45 minutes from Stuttgart at the entrance to the Black Forest. It was a different experience seeing snow at Christmas. When off duty the players were at the gym most mornings, then taught rugby at schools, taking four to six classes in a session and helping out juniors at the rugby club.
