A STANDOUT FOR both the Hurricanes and the Wellington Lions provincial side, Matt Proctor has become one of the most respected players in both teams. He made his Investec Super Rugby debut for the Hurricanes in 2013 and was a part of the side that secured their first Super Rugby title in 2016.
One of the best midfielders in Super Rugby, Proctor celebrated his 50th game for the side this year and scored three tries, before suffering two serious sternum injuries, with the second injury ending his Super season. He has since returned to the field for Wellington’s 2018 Mitre 10 Cup campaign, where he was named captain, reward for his great leadership on and off the field. Proctor is a brilliant communicator on the field, giving himself and the players around him the confidence to concentrate on their roles.
He has represented the Maori All Blacks in ten appearances and his representative career also includes New Zealand Schools and New Zealand Under 20. He is not the only Hurricanes player in the family, with younger brother Billy signing a five-year deal with the club in September.
