Brad Weber

17th Jan 1991 1.73m/75kg Scrum Half

Weber is a former Junior World Champion, having won the Title with the New Zealand U20s side in 2011.

While studying for an applied science degree at Otago University, Weber decided to start his rugby senior career playing for the Otago Razorbacks. Difficulties in the year 2013 saw him shift his focus from rugby to school.

However, a month into the season he received a call from Waikato coach Johnny Walters who wanted to take him north to provide more competition for halfbacks Mick Snowden and Kylem O'Donnell.

His successful switch saw him being named into the Chiefs wider training group.

Weber was named the captain of the Waikato ITM Cup squad for the 2014 ITM Cup season and co-captain with Whetu Douglas for the 2015 ITM Cup season.

Weber made his debut for the Chiefs against the Crusaders in 2014 and following some impressive performances he was called into the New Zealand squad. He made his debut against Samoa in Apia in 2015 but has been unable to make the team again following a string of injuries and the strong competition for the All Black no.9 jersey.

He was a mainstay in the Chiefs team in 2016 and played a starring role in his side’s celebrated win over Wales.

The dynamic halfback has played 41 Super Rugby games for the Chiefs to date.

In August 2017 he signed a new three year deal with the Chiefs and will remain with the side until 2020.

His 2017 on-field aspirations suffered a setback when he fractured his femur during this year’s inaugural Brisbane Global Rugby Tens final.

He will make his highly anticipated return to rugby for Hawke’s Bay in the 2017 Mitre 10 Cup competition.

Weber was back to usual busy self during the Mitre 10 Cup season and was named in the Maori All Blacks squad.

Weber will look to reclaim his spot in the All Black squad in 2018 and heads into the 2018 Super Rugby season with 41 Super Rugby caps.
