Ardie Savea

Loose forward

Bio

Ardie Savea continues to be regarded as one of the best openside flankers in world rugby.

An automatic first choice for the Hurricanes, Savea has also become an established member of the world champion All Blacks squad.

Savea has a large number of strengths to his game, including his ability to get over the advantage line with ball in hand while he is also one of the toughest men to combat at the breakdown.

His ability to read the game and turn up in support are also two of his great assets while he has now scored 20 tries in his Hurricanes career.

Two of those tries were against the Highlanders in 2019, a performance labeled one of the best in Super Rugby history.
