He won the Geyserland Shears Open Final at the Rotorua A&P Show during the weekend - the twelfth time he had won that particular event.

During the previous weekend, he won the national crossbred lamb shearing championship at the Winton A&P Show's Southland Shears.

Mr Fagan has thrown out hints recently that, at the age of 53, he might be considering retiring from competitive shearing after this season.
