Voted number 7 on Yahoo New Zealands list of the greatest sporting turn coats of all time in 2011. Educated at west Aucklands Massey high school, a young Shontane played his junior rugby league for the Te Atatu Roosters. Playing from the Roosters Shontane played for the junior Kiwis in 1998. By 2001 Shontane had transfered across to fellow west Auckland club the Glenora Bears where he played for the clubs Bartercard cup side. at the tender age of 18 Shontane signed with the New Zealand Warriors. By round 7 of the 2000 NRL season Shontane had broken into the Warriors top grade side. Shontane would play a further 27 (28 games in total) before surprising many by turning his back on what looked like a long and illustrious NRL and Kiwis career by signing with the Bradford Bulls in the ESL. After a tip off from Kiwis legend Robbie Paul the Bulls signed Shontane for the 2003 season. Shontane lived with Paul and his wife durring his first season in the ESL. After a surprise recall to the New Zealand national side in 2004, Shontane injured his knee which ruled him out of that season until round 22. In a unique twist of fate Shontane formed a feared partnership for the Bulls with man voted the 4th greatest turn coat of all time by the same Yahoo New Zealand list, Leslie Vainikolo. 2008 would be Shontanes last in rugby league before he signed a three year deal with Bath rugby in the Guinness premiership. Shontane left Bath in 2011 to join the London Irish. 2012 would see Shontane join Montpellier in the French top 14. Shontane played 14 tests for the Kiwis and 13 tests for the England rugby team. In his spare time Shontane DJ's in night clubs.

Born in Torquay, Devon England to Scotish parents and raised in Australia along with his Brothers Kevin and Andrew who are also professional rugby league players. Ian and his brothers were educated at Terrigal high school on the NSW central coast. Ian came to promience as a 20 year old for the Sydney Roosters against the Parramatta Eels in round 1 of the 2003 season. In 2005 Ian moved to the Parramatta Eels but left mid season after failing to break into the NRL side and only playing in 1 match, joining the Bradford Bulls. Ian made an immediate impact for Bradford who won the ESL that year. However with the arrival of Great Britain and England international at the Bulls, and the now late Terry Newton, Ian saw little game time in his prefered position of hooker. in 2008 Ian rejoined the NRL with the New Zealand club, the Warriors, and immediately made an impact....off the field by claiming Castleford in west Yorkshire was the worst place he had ever lived, going on to say that the residents had "rotten teeth, spend to much time drinking and need to have a bath". Ians first game for the Warriors was against the Melbourne Storm in round 1 of 2008. Ian would remain with the Warriors until 2011 and would join the French club the Catalan Dragons in 2011. All three Henerson brothers have represented Scotland in international rugby league and all three played for Scotland in the 2008 world cup. In 2012 controversy again swirled around Ian when he was called into the England rugby league squad to much critcism from those within the game and those outside of it.

A junior Kiwi and school boy Kiwi in the early 80's, Terry was born and raised in Christchurch. Terry gained the nickname "the rock" while playing in the Canterbury RL in New Zealand due to his stocky, heavy frame built for prop forward play in rugby league. Terry's first taste of professional rugby league came in 1991 when he signed to play for Doncaster in England. South Sydney was the next stop in Terry's journey and at the height of the Super League war he moved to the Sydney Roosters and played along side fellow Kiwi prop Jason Lawrie. After 66 games for the Roosters Terry resigned for Souths for the 1998 season and played in 17 games for them. Terry signed on to play for the Adalaide Rams for 1999, however they were victims of the Super League wars and Terry was forced to look for a new club and in 1999 he signed for the Auckland Warriors for two seasons playing in 39 games for the club over the next 2 years and also being awarded the Warriors club man of the year in 1999. After retirement Terry returned to Christchurch and has been coaching local club and representative sides in the city since and including the NZ Maori side that played in the Pacific cup of 2004.
