Who is Adam Thomson?

Adam Thomson is a New Zealand Rugby union player who plays provincial rugby for Otago, and plays for the Highlanders Super Rugby team. He plays mainly in the number 6 Jersey on the blind side of the scrum. He has been selected for the 2008 All Blacks to play England and Ireland, and made his All Blacks debut against Ireland as a replacement for Rodney So'oialo on 7 June 2008. He is known by fans as the "wooly mammoth" due to his size and hair. He is also known as "Blond Cena" due to his interest in wrestling and his celebration of "You can't see me", a signature taunt/gimmick by John Cena. Thomson is yet to re-sign with the NZRU and Highlanders and it is widely expected he will be moving overseas. He was not included in the Highlanders initial squad or wider training squad.
