Meet the team
Otere Black came storming out of High School rugby with Tu Toa in 2013 to claim the Senior 1 highest point scorer for College Old Boys with a staggering 223 points from just 16 games. A composed and intelligent player, Otere won a Super Rugby contract with the Hurricanes in 2015, before moving to the Blues in 2018.
Originally from Palmerston North Boys High School Hemopo opted to return to his roots in 2016 after a couple of seasons in Otago. The Highlanders lock had a break-out Super Rugby campaign in 2017 including a man-of-the-match performance against the British and Irish Lions. He was named the Turbos' player of the year in 2017.
Iose was a star at schoolboy level when he captained the New Zealand Secondary Schools' side, so it was no surprise when he was immediately signed to the Turbos. Iose's pace around the park and ability to break tackles made him one of the most elusive loose forwards in the game.
