Career Comments

  • Northern Region ‘A,’ King Country Under 18, Otorohanga College 1XV (2005)

    The highly regarded flyer from the Bay of Plenty flyer earned his call up to the All Blacks Sevens in 2009 after a stand out season in provincial rugby. Not surprisingly he regards winning a Commonwealth Games gold medal a year later as a career highlight. Injury meant he missed the 2012/13 season, but remains determined to pull the black jersey on again.
