Francis Saili

16th Feb 1991 1.80m/99kg Outside Centre

An exciting young talent, Saili is a genuine threat to opposition defence. In 2011 he played for the New Zealand Under-20 team and made his provincial debut.

A member of the Blues wider training group in 2012 Saili made his Super Rugby debut later that season. Saili started his professional rugby career in 2011, with a start in the NPC for Auckland. In 2012 he commenced playing for the Blues in a match against the Stormers. In 2013, Saili was named a member of the All Blacks.

Saili joined the province at the end of July on completion of his 2015 contractual commitments with the Blues and is contracted for 2 seasons.

The 24 year-old made 42 Super Rugby appearances for the Blues, scoring seven tries, and represented Auckland in the ITM Cup on 31 occasions.

Saili 2016/2017 campaign has been set back due to a shoulder injury ruling him out for four months.

In May 2017, Munster Rugby confirmed that Saili will depart the club at the end of the season. Saili has made 38 appearances over two seasons and scored 8 tries
