Tyler Laubscher

Loose forward


A product of Palmerston North Boys’ High School, Tyler Laubscher signed to the Manawatū Academy in 2019, making the Under 19s squad and debuting against Bay of Plenty.  

The South African-born loose forward impressed to earn a Turbos debut in the final round of the season – a win at home against Counties Manukau.  

Comfortable at both blindside flanker and No 8 with his 1.94m, 104kg frame, Laubscher’s game is built on that physicality which is part of the DNA of South African footy players. He is a powerful asset in and around the ruck, and over the ball.
