In his last competition shear in the South Island, the 53-year-old completed a Southern Shears Open and South Island Shearer of the Year double in Gore.

He also led New Zealand to a comfortable test match win over Wales and featured in a North Island team which won a bi-annual inter-island shearing match.

It was David Fagan's 12th win in the Southern Shears Open final, and seventh in the Shearer of the Year final, each of which he last won in 2001.
