Kaylum Boshier, born on April 9, 1999, is a multi-talented New Zealand rugby union player who showcases his skills both on the rugby field and in the realm of cricket. Hailing from New Plymouth, Boshier has excelled in both sports, leaving a mark in his respective teams.

As a former student of New Plymouth Boys High School, Boshier's sporting prowess became evident at a young age. In 2018, he captained the New Zealand Under 19 cricket team, displaying his leadership abilities and talent on the cricket pitch. That same year, Boshier made his debut for Taranaki in a Ranfurly Shield challenge, making an impact by scoring a try in the second half of the match.

In 2021, Boshier joined his older brother Lachlan Boshier in the Gallagher Chiefs squad, marking a significant moment in their careers. This move came after Kaylum's outstanding individual performance in the 2020 Mitre 10 Cup, where he represented Taranaki. As a versatile and dynamic loose forward, Boshier quickly made an impression early in the Gallagher Chiefs' campaign.

Unfortunately, his progress was interrupted by a season-ending injury, which also ruled him out of the Taranaki NPC campaign. However, Boshier remains determined and focused on his recovery, eagerly anticipating his return for the Gallagher Chiefs' 2022 campaign.

While rugby has been his primary focus, Boshier's talent extends beyond the rugby field. He has also made a name for himself in cricket, and in 2018, he had the honor of captaining New Zealand's squad for the Under-19 Cricket World Cup, showcasing his versatility and leadership in yet another sport.

Kaylum Boshier's combination of sporting prowess, leadership qualities, and versatility make him an exciting player to watch. With his skills in both rugby and cricket, Boshier is a true testament to his dedication, talent, and passion for sports.
