Offaly Lock Starts Alongside Two All-Blacks In New Zealand

Birr's Jack Regan is making a name for himself down under.

Offaly lock Jack Regan will start alongside two All-Blacks for Super Rugby franchise The Highlanders on Friday. 

It's the New Zealand team's final pre season game before their season begins next week. 

The Birr man will be marshalled in the pack by 97 times capped international Aaron Smith, while Nehe Milner Skudder lines out at full back. 

It is the second week in a row the 23 year-old will start following a solid performance against the Crusaders. 

The game kicks-off at 4:55am Irish time tomorrow morning.
