A big, athletic prop from Mount Albert Grammar and the Blues Under-18 programme. Alex played for his native Fiji at the 2012 edition of Under-20 World Cup before switching his allegiance to New Zealand for the 2013 tournament.

Alex joined the province of Canterbury in 2014 and took up a place with the Crusaders in 2015, representing them 11 times in his 2 seasons with the club.

Hodgman has developed into a key set phase contributor for Canterbury over his 5 seasons at the province and provides valuable rugby knowledge and experience for the Blues. Alex enjoyed another excellent season for Canterbury but will want to push for higher honours. The powerful and explosive scrummager will be looking to add to his 11 caps for the Blues in 2019.
