He also played 11 games for the Maori All Blacks.
He had made his first-class debut for Waikato in 1996 and was included in the Chiefs Super Rugby team in 1997. He played 81 games for Waikato and 58 games for the Chiefs.
After deciding not to renew his contract with the New Zealand Rugby Union in 2002 he played for Northampton Saints in England's premiership.
Reihana, who often played fullback, eventually became captain of the Northampton side and was twice named the winner of the Rugby Players' of the Year Award.
He scored more than 1000 points for the club and when leaving the club in 2011 he joined Bordeaux.
The club decided not to renew his contract for next season after a knee injury kept him out of action.
He had hoped he might be able to play rugby with his son Evaan who is playing for Bordeaux's youth side.
