Julia Savea was dropped from the All Blacks on his birthday – but his wife says he won’t let it bring him down.
In a cute Instagram-story, Savea’s wife Tima posted a touching message of encouragement after he was dropped from the All Blacks on his birthday yesterday.
It reads: “I just want to say how proud I am of this man for his constant hard work. Being told you’re not good enough is never easy, but he never dwells on it nor does he let it bring him down.”
“Sometimes life throws curveballs at you, and all you can do it work harder to get back up there.”
“Not the best birthday present he could receive, But he is surrounded by amazing family and friend who will always be there for him. #nottheend”
It was a bit of a rough blow for Savea on his 27th birthday, but it looks like he had a wonderful celebration none-the-less.
The cute couple are expecting another baby girl to their family too.
Tima posted a lovely snap of her glowing baby belly, “Twenty•One weeks and growing fast 💕”
