NEWS: After a splendid season in the National Rugby Championship prop Markus Vanzati is keen to prove himself in the Reds' jersey in 2017.

The 21-year-old spent three years with the South Magpies and his amazing showing in 2015 has landed him a preseason training spot in the Super Rugby franchise set-up.

The Reds are currently busy with off-site training which include rowing and rock climbing.

"It is a first for me, I've never been rock climbing before it was challenging but I enjoy it to try something new.

Vanzati admits that the preseason will be tough but is ambitious he will get an opportunity to debut for the side.
