Hoskins Sotutu

12th Jul 1998 1.92m/106kg No. 8

Son of former Auckland & Fijian back Waisake Sotutu, who was the vice-captain for Fiji at the 1999 World Cup, Hoskins is powerful loose forward who can play on the side of the scrum as well as no.8.

Sotutu represented New Zealand Schools and was a member of Auckland's winning Under-19 side and played for Auckland B before earning a call up to the Auckland Mitre 10 Cup squad for the final game of the season.

He was named in the New Zealand u20s squad for the 2018 World Under-20 Championship and following his inclusion in the squad he signed a two-year deal with the Blues for 2019 Super Rugby season onwards.

Hoskins made his debut for the Blues against the Crusaders in Christchurch in Round 15 of the 2019 season.

Having had a taste of Super Rugby in his rookie season, many expect Hoskins to return hungry for more in 2020.
