A formidable scrummager and immensely strong, Joe Moody showed enough potential in his early seasons to have pundits and the All Blacks coaches predicting a big future in the black jersey -and he has been delivering on that.
A huge domestic season earned Moody a spot for the All Blacks 2013 Northern Tour. Unfortunately, an ankle injury in the ITM Cup Final prior to departure saw him miss the tour. Coming so close gave Moody extra motivation for his rehabilitation work and he got his chance again in 2014, when he was called into the Investec Rugby Championship squad as an injury replacement.
Although named in the All Blacks squad for 2015, he did not add further to his tally in the pre-RWC Tests. However, an injury to veteran Tony Woodcock saw him called onto the plane for the second-half of RWC 2015 and he took part in all three playoff matches.
