Inform halfback Cortez Ratima was influential in Waikato’s 2021 National Provincial campaign leading to his debut for the Gallagher Chiefs the following season against the Crusaders.

Ratima has excellent ball-in-hand skills and speed around the ruck making him a dynamic halfback. In his debut Super Rugby season, his skill was recognised with his selection for the All Blacks XV squad for their Northern Tour.
