English captain Hartley's local ties Nice start: Dylan Hartley, Rotorua- born captain of the England rugby team, scores a try moments after his run-on role for England against the All Blacks in 2010. Welcome home: Dylan Hartley with his parents Caroline and Guy at their Kaharoa farm this month, pictured in front of one of artist Mrs Hartley's paintings. Photo: PHIL CAMPBELL By PHIL CAMPBELL The New Zealand-born captain of England's rugby team for its test match against South Africa, Dylan Hartley, has connections with Upper Hutt where his father Guy grew up and played rugby for Heretaunga College. Hartley is believed to be the first Kiwi to captain an England team in a mainstream sport. Sports commentators Lindsay Knight, Keith Quinn and Joseph Romanos cannot think of any other Kiwi to have the honour. Hartley, 26, led England in the final test against South Africa in Port Elizabeth last month after captain Chris Robshaw was injured. It ended in a 14-14 draw. Hartley has relatives in Upper Hutt. Michael Travers, though not a great follower of rugby, is proud of his great-nephew's achievements. Another relative, Margaret Anderson, who is a cousin of Guy Hartley, follows Dylan's achieve- ments and keeps in contact with his grandmother, Colleen Hartley, in Rotorua. Guy Hartley grew up in the family home at 1 Wallaceville Hill Rd. His parents Vince and Colleen had six children. Guy attended nearby Here- taunga College where he played rugby at No 8. He married English wife Caro- line at St Mary's Church, Silver- stream, and they settled in Ngon- gotaha, Rotorua, and had three sons, Blair, Dylan and Alex. The young Hartley started out playing soccer and switched to rugby at 11. He was named his club's player of the year at the end of the sea- son. He played rugby for Rotorua Boys' High before he headed to England and stayed with relatives there. He was scouted for England's under-17 squad but offered a pos- ition in the Worcester rugby acad- emy, training fulltime and being supported financially by his fam- ily in New Zealand. Hartley represented England at the 2005 Under-21 Rugby World Championship. In February 2007, Hartley made his debut for the England Saxons, against Italy A. Last year Hartley captained the Northampton Saints in the Heine- ken Cup, the prestigious compe- tition for top European clubs. Hartley has not been immune from controversy for several on- field clashes. In 2007 he was banned for 26 weeks for eye-gouging. Earlier this year he was cited for allegedly biting an Irish flanker in the Six Nations match between England and Ireland and was banned for eight weeks. But the English system has given him the captaincy, if only for a game. Hartley visited his parents in Rotorua after the South Africa test. I think it's only dawning on me now,'' Hartley, a 41-test vet- eran, told the Rotorua Review. I went to a family barbecue (at Waihi) on Sunday for my grand- mother's 80th birthday and it hit home, with people congratulating me. It's very warming and all I could think at the time [of selec- tion] is that it should make my parents proud.'' A further welcome awaited Hartley at Northampton, his Eng- land home, before he prepares for the European rugby season. He said it was unfortunate reg- ular captain Chris Robshaw was injured. Hartley had been told by coach Stuart Lancaster he was part of England's leadership group. He had told Hartley: We're going to go with Chris as captain; we still need you on board.'' I carried on as normal. It's an honour. I'm just flattered that he came to me and asked me.'' Guy Hartley says his son has become greatly admired in the community. It is immense. It humbled me as his father to be put on a ped- estal on the two occasions I've been there. I was in about half a dozen shops and people in them said to me, You're Dylan Hartley's father' -- they sort of want to hug you .... " Rugby success has opened many doors for Dylan Hartley, even to the royal family. He has met Princess Anne and got to know Prince Harry, a rugby buff. After one game, Hartley had called his parents and returned to his seat now occupied by a paprika-haired man he felt he should have recognised but did not. Hartley asked the man why he was sitting in his seat. The man replied, "I'm [Prince] Harry." Hartley replied: "Good on you, but has that seat got your number on it?" Despite his rugby celebrity, Hartley retains a strong bond with New Zealand. He's proud of where he's come from and he's settled in a good place,'' his father says.
