The young Taranaki player stepped into the big time of Sevens on debut, being selected for the famous Hong Kong Sevens in March 2015. His skills as both a forward and back saw him drafted into the New Zealand squad following a top performance at the National Sevens that year. He has not looked back.
As a former basketballer, his height and speed has made him invaluable in contesting the ball in the air and on attack. His versatility saw him earn seven caps in the 2015/16 season.
He cites his brother Jackson who has played sevens for New Zealand and fifteens for Taranaki as his inspiration for his blossoming rugby career.
