Brad Weber

Brad Weber made his Investec Super Rugby debut for the Chiefs in 2014 against the Crusaders and was a stand-out performer in this season’s campaign becoming the first choice half back.

Weber, who is in the final stages of completing a degree in business, captained Waikato during the 2014 ITM Cup season and displayed his strong leadership skills. His pass is one of the fastest in the game, matched only by his electric pace which allows him to reach the breakdown particularly quickly.

The former Napier Boys' High School player has represented Otago whilst studying at University and played for the victorious New Zealand Under 20 side in 2011 when they defeated England in Italy to win the title.
