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 the 2015 campaign, establishing himself the first-choice halfback, earning an All Blacks call-up for the historic match against Samoa and making his Maori All Blacks debut against the Barbarians in what was a very busy year.

In 2016, he shifted to Hawke’s Bay from Waikato for the Mitre 10 Cup, where he continued to display 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 quickly. He was unlucky in 2017 to suffer a thigh injury, sidelining him for the entire season, though he was back in 2018, making instant impact for the Chiefs.

The former Napier Boys’ High School player 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.
