Not only is Liam Messam one of the best players in the world, he is also a down to earth community member!

After a hectic season with the All Blacks, the loose forward doesn't arrive back at Chiefs training until next month, but in the meantime has found himself running the streets of Hamilton and picking up neighbourhood rubbish bags.

The 29-year-old and his younger brother came off the bench to take to the Waste Management truck on Boxing Day after former teammate Keith Lowen went down with injury.

Lowen was cut by a piece of glass, leaving the one-test All Black with a nasty, deep gash on his leg.
