Ngani Laumape

Midfield Back

Bio

After adjusting to rugby union following a short career in rugby league, Laumape became a menace to opposition backlines in 2017.

He started every match for the Hurricanes and was the team’s leading try scorer with 15. His form earned him selection in the All Blacks. A devastating ball carrier with a low centre of gravity and a good all round skill set to match.

Laumape added to his game in 2018, introducing a sharp kicking set while still possessing plenty of power which again caused opposition defences plenty of trouble.

Against the Blues, Laumape matched team-mate Ben Lam's feat of scoring four tries in a match.

By the end of the 2018 Super Rugby season, Laumpae had crossed nine times and was the Hurricanes Player of the Year for the second year running.
