The powerful young winner was called into the injury ravaged Turbos in 2018. His cameo off the bench showed his class with a couple of handy runs down the sideline. He was signed for the 2019 season on the back of continued improvements in club rugby.
Michael Alaalatoa joined the Manawatu Turbos in 2015 from the Waratahs. The beastly 136kg prop is solid at the set piece, and added some real grunt to the Turbos' front row. For an indication of the man's size, you only have to ask the Italians who dubbed him Jonah Lomu II Colosso.
