Ben Tameifuna entered last year’s Investec Super Rugby
competition as injury cover and quickly made his mark with
his strong scrummaging skills for such a young player and was
nominated for Chiefs Rookie of the Year. The former halfback
was part of the New Zealand Under 20 IRB Junior World
Championship winning team and has proven he is a big defender
who is strong with the ball in hand.
Tameifuna played ITM Cup for Hawke’s Bay and represented
New Zealand Schools in 2009.
