Finally fit and health, Tyler Campbell wants to win with Bond and push on from there

After a horror run of injuries, Bond centre Tyler Campbell is relishing the opportunity to play consistent rugby and is quickly cementing himself as one of the premier backs in the Hospital Cup competition.

Campbell scored a try in Bond’s tight 19-12 win over Norths last weekend and said he’s loving every minute of this season, despite the Bull Shark’s slowish start to the year.

“It’s always tough travelling up to Norths and they are a much improved team this year which adds to it,” Campbell told Rugby News.

“They were really up for it and made us work for the win. I think we made an extra 100 tackles compared to them, so we spent a lot of time in defence but found a way to grind it out.

“It was huge for us. Sometimes you just need to get that first win to build a bit of confidence and hopefully we can build some momentum on the back of that and perform well against Jeeps this weekend.”

A schoolboy star at TSS, Campbell moved to Waikato after finishing school to study and play rugby and played his way into the NPC and eventually the Chiefs extended Super Rugby squad.
