Davidson is excited to be returning for his third season with the EnviroNZ Franklin Bulls and his passion for the fans and community is clear, saying “I want this side of Auckland to have a team to get behind. It’s an amazing community and we easily have the best fans in the league. They deserve a successful team out there and I’m so hyped to play for that.”
