The former Manawatu Under 19s representative headed off to Wanganui in 2016 and had a bumper year making the New Zealand Heartland XV and being named Heartland Player of the Year. In 2017 he returned to Manawatu and proved he is up to the task of Mitre 10 Cup rugby.
Fraser Armstrong left Auckland to link up with the Manawatu Turbos in 2015. The young prop played for the NZ schools and under-20 side. His consistent performances for the Turbos saw him rewarded with a Hurricanes contract in 2018.
Brice Henderson is an all round loose forward who made his debut for Turbos in 2015 after a year in the wider squad. A tough ball carrier with a high work rate in the contact area Brice adds plenty of depth and ability to the Turbos pack.
