Wayne Pivac Banking On A “Beefy” Repeat From James Botham . . . Power, Pain, And Victory

For Wayne Pivac, the name Botham always used to mean one thing – the smashing of his beloved New Zealand cricket team all around the park. Thirty five years on from when Beefy the new baron was in his pomp, Pivac has asked Botham’s grandson, James, to repel the Georgians. Botham junior/junior – son of Liam, who also played rugby for Cardiff – has fast-tracked “Jimbo” into an international debut on Saturday after only 13 games of senior rugby for the Blues.
