A graduate from St Kentigern College, Rivez Reihana was a mainstay of his school’s 1st XV that won the Auckland title in 2017. Reihana was one of few players who made his 1st XV debut as a year 9 and maintained his role for all 5 years.

He represented the New Zealand Schools side in 2017 and 2018, then playing for the U20 team a year later – while he was still 19. Later that year, Reihana made his first appearance for Waikato, in their opening Mitre 10 Cup clash with Canterbury. He decided to return home in 2021 and play for Northland in the 2021 NPC season.

In 2021 Reihana made his Gallagher Chiefs debut in 2021 v the Blues at Eden Park.
