Dane Coles

Hooker

Bio

Coles had a disrupted 2017 season due to concussion, but returned for the Hurricanes in the playoffs and brought up his 100th cap in the semi-final against the Lions in Johannesburg.

Coles was named to lead the Hurricanes again in 2018 but a knee injury which he sustained on the All Blacks end-of-year tour meant he was unable to make it back due to complictions with the surgery.

Coles, a ball-running hooker who has revolutionised his position on the international stage, hopes to return to the Hurricanes in 2019.
