Valentino Mapapalangi

Valentino Mapapalangi - Turbo # 115

Valentino Mapapalangi arrived at the Manawatu Turbos in 2015 from Waikato. The big lock wasn't snapped up by Waikato for the ITM Cup, so the Turbos will be the ones to benefit from his hard-hitting tackles and barnstorming runs. Having played for the Chiefs development side in 2015, Valentino is a promising young player who could take some big strides his debut provincial season.
