Tevita Taufu'i

Tevita Taufu'i is a hard hitting and ball-pilfering second five that thrived for the Turbos. He gradually worked his way up the pecking order, spending time in Sri Lanka in order to gain the physicality that would earn him a starting spot for Manawatu. He would later play provincial rugby for Waikato.
