Malakai Fekitoa

2014 has been an incredible year for the Tongan-born Malakai Fekitoa who turned on an electrifying Super Rugby debut season for the Highlanders. His consistently powerful running and abrasive defence forced the All Blacks selectors to pick him for their first squad of year. Remarkably, his elevation to the All Blacks and his debut against England in the June Steinlager Series, came just four months after he entered Super Rugby.

A product of Wesley College, which also produced All Blacks Jonah Lomu and Frank Halai, Fekitoa is also a talented sevens player and was Player of the Tournament at the 2011 National Sevens.
