Nathan Harris is a hooker of immense quality and has proved a key front rower for the All Blacks, playing nine Tests in 2018.
Harris made his Investec Super Rugby debut in 2014 and later that year joined the All Blacks for the Investec Rugby Championship as an injury replacement.
He missed all international rugby in 2015 through injury and only managed two tests in 2016 before his season was again cruelly shortened by injury.
A timely return in 2017 saw him selected for the DHL New Zealand Lions Series and he relished his opportunities when they came, including playing in all three Lions Tests as well as two Tests on theVista Northern Tour later that year.
As a younger player, Harris was part of the New Zealand Under 20 side which made the Final of the 2012 Junior World Championship. Harris played at number 8 before switching to the front row; All Blacks legend Keven Mealamu was another former loosie to make that switch.
