Before leaving NZ I was selected for the Auckland U19 wider development squad but left to play in UK Prior to this was 3 years in Auckland for Suburbs RFC playing U20s & U21s and Colts, also played 3 years 1st

My hooking skills are my talents, I am very mobile around
the field I can throw straight, to the front, middle and back accurately, (i.e.
how far do you want me to throw?) Good at winning
tightheads Love contact and can cover 6 & 8. I am hoping to contribute some quality key

challenges provided and hope to find a club that can assist with
accommodation and a job to support myself.
