Ellery Wilson - Hawke's Bay Magpie

“ Don’t let your respiratory condition hold you back! “

That’s the word from Hawke’s Bay Magpies half-back Ellery Wilson. Being asthmatic hasn’t let his condition stop him achieving his goals.

He’s played representative rugby league, was a top swimmer in his youth and featured in the ITM rugby competition for Hawke’s Bay since 2014.
