The Palmerston North Boys High School bulldozer returned to rugby in 2016 following a stint with the Warriors in the NRL. An immensely strong Ball Carrier, Ngani played alongside Jason Emery at High School in what was one of the more formidable school boy pairings seen in recent times. He cracked the All Blacks 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.
The young 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.
