Joe Moody is the next “tank off the rank” from the Crusaders and Canterbury frontrow factory, showing impressive potential in the since his first–class debut in 2012 and taking every opportunity provided to him to add a steady steel to the pack.
Moody made his Super Rugby debut in 2013 and a year later showed the ability to perform at the highest level with five appearances for the All Blacks during the 2014 Investec Rugby Championship.
A formidable scrummager and immensely strong, Moody is seen by the coaches as having a big future in the black jersey.
Other sports aside from rugby have also benefitted from Moody’s strength and physicality: he has represented New Zealand in age–grade rugby league and wrestling, winning a bronze medal in the latter at the Junior Commonwealth Games.
