Mike Fitzgerald is in his second year with the Chiefs. The young
lock played every game in the 2012 ITM Cup competition for
his side Manawatu. He got limited game time in his Investec
Super Rugby debut season but added impact off the bench
with his uncompromising attitude in contact. The ultimate work
horse has proven to be a solid tackler. Fitzgerald represented the
Heartland XV that toured the United States in 2009.
