Before he wowed the world as one of the greatest players to ever don the No 15, Christian Cullen was a standout for Manawatu. His Manawatu career lasted 15 games between 1995 and 1996 before he played for the Central Vikings in 1997. Cullen was the All Blacks' leading try scorer when he played his final test in 2002, a mark that stood until 2007 when he was overtaken by Doug Howlett.
