Faingaanuku is a star on the rise. The blockbusting outside back is a former Nelson College First XV product, who won the Phillip McDonald Memorial Medal for the UC Championship’s MVP in 2017.

He has represented NZ Secondary Schools’, Junior Knights, Crusaders Knights and the NZ Under 20 side.

Faingaanuku made his provincial debut for the Tasman Mako against Otago in 2018 and joined the Crusaders as one of five new players in 2019.

Ahead of the 2020 Super Rugby season, Fainga'anuku has been named again for the Crusaders squad.

He heads into the 2020 Mitre 10 Cup season with 13 appearances for Tasman Makos.
