Charles Piutau

31st Oct 1991 1.86m/95kg Fullback

Piutau was the top try scorer for the New Zealand Under-20s in their 2011 World Championship winning campaign.

In 2010 he played for the Tongan Under 20 team and he was a member of the New Zealand Sevens team in 2011/12.

He was brought into the Blues squad to cover injuries at the tail end of the 2012 season and proved his skills are up there with the best in his two ‘match of the match’ appearances.

Having represented both Tonga & NZ U20's along with the NZ 7's side his natural progression was into the All Black side where he made his debut against France in 2013.

Piutau signed with Premiership side Wasps for the 2015/2016 season and was shortlisted for the RPA Player of the Year.

He is set to join Irish side Ulster for the 2016/2017 rugby season. In May 2017, Piutau was voted the PRO12 Guinness Players' Player of the Season.

Charles has made 23 appearances for Ulster scoring 9 tries at the beginning of the 2017-18 season.

In August 2017, Bristol announced the signing of the utility back for the 2018/19 season on a two-year deal.
