Former All Black Josh Kronfeld was best known on the rugby field for how fast he was able to get to the breakdown.

He excelled in New Zealand Rugby in the 1990s, perfecting the role of the modern flanker.

Growing up in the Hawke's Bay, Josh moved to Dunedin to study physical education at the University of Otago, where his rugby career took off.

Playing for Otago, the Highlanders, and Leicester throughout his career, he also played 56 games for the All Blacks, gaining 54 test caps and appearing at both the 1995 and 1999 Rugby World Cup.

After retiring from professional rugby in 2003, Josh returned to Otago to study physiotherapy. No stranger to Kiwi screens, he has appeared on TV ONE's Dancing With The Stars and TV2's Celebrity Treasure Island and Superstars Of Treasure Island.

Now Josh is attempting to add a Guinness World Record to his long list of achievements - by catching the most eggs thrown and caught in one minute.
