Chris Eves is one of a number of Maori All Blacks who joined the squad for the first time in 2013 after an impressive ITM Cup season. He is a member of the Tainui iwi.
The tighthead prop is difficult to stop when he’s heading for the tryline, with considerable power and strength. Originally from North Harbour, Eves moved to Wellington where he was part of the Academy setup. He joined Manawatu as a loan player in 2013, where he was a vital part of the Turbos’ set up for that year.
