Charlie Faumuina

A cornerstone of the Blues and Auckland forward packs, Faumuina has earned plenty of experience since he made his provincial debut for Auckland in 2007, the same year he played for a New Zealand Under 21 team that included fellow All Blacks Owen Franks and Ben Smith.

He plays most of his rugby at tighthead but has the ability to play loosehead as well, with his deft footwork and ball skills also adding value.

Faumuina is one of New Zealand’s most mobile props around the paddock and was in dominant form for the Blues in the 2014 Super Rugby season, enjoying the tight tussles but equally adept in open play.
