Asafo Aumua

Hooker

Bio

Aumua burst onto the provincial scene with a hat-trick of tries on debut against Northland in 2016 and became a wrecking ball for the Wellington Lions in 2017 as he scored seven tries in 10 matches.

His efforts earned a call up to the All Blacks for their northern tour where he made his debut against the French Barbarians.

A St Patrick’s College Silverstream produce, Aumua was also a key member of the New Zealand Under 20s squad in 2017.

He was expected to play a major part in the Hurricanes 2018 campaign after squad captain Dane Coles was ruled out but a wrist injury kept him sidelined after he made four appearances.
