Hawke’s Bay first-five Tiaan Falcon made his Mitre 10 debut at just 19 years old. Falcon guided the New Zealand Under 20s to victory in the 2017 Under 20 World Championship.

Following his success Falcon was named in the Gallagher Chiefs 2018 squad. He debuted later that season against the Blues.

Falcon went through the injury mill in 2019. Rupturing his achilles tendon in pre-season training, ruled him out of the 2019 Investec Super Rugby season. Falcon returned to the game assisting Hawke’s Bay in making the 2019 Mitre 10 Cup Championship final.
