An upcoming first five, Te Rure scored 114 points in his 19 games for the Turbos. He was a rising star that earned 3 caps for the New Zealand Under 20's. He left New Zealand to play rugby in Scotland for Edinburgh under his grandmother's Scottish heritage at the end of 2014, but returned in 2017.
Kayne came into the squad after a solid season with Feilding Yellows in 2014. Originally from Wellington, the young halfback also represented New Zealand U20 at the Junior World Cup in 2010. He is a great support runner with the full skill set to get himself over the line.
The damaging ball-carrier returns home for the 2018 season. After coming through the grades in Manawatu, Thompson set off for Canterbury 2013. His consistent performances for the red and blacks saw him signed to the Crusaders in 2014. In 2016 he signed with the Highlanders where he has established himself as a mainstay of the southerners' backline. Thompson is brother of former Turbos first five-eighth Isaac Thompson.
