With dominant physicality and the ability to cover both tight both sides of the scrum, this prop is an influential leader in the Blues team.

The talented All Black possesses impressive ball handling skills and outstanding footwork to match the real power he brings to the Blues front row. The Papatoetoe High School graduate made his first provincial appearance for Auckland in 2007, also playing for the NZ Under-21 team the same year.
