Jeffery Toomaga-Allen

19th Nov 1990 1.92m/125kg Tighthead Prop

Toomaga-Allen made his provincial debut in a non-championship pre-season match against Manawatu in 2011, but a hamstring injury prevented him playing for the Wellington Lions in the ITM Cup. He made his provincial ITM Cup debut for the Lions in 2012, earning 10 caps. He was named Wellington rugby’s Player of the Year for 2012.

He was 2011 Sportsman of the Year of his Wellington club side Marist St. Pat’s, an honour that in recent years has also been bestowed upon current Hurricane Victor Vito and former Hurricane and now Melbourne Rebel Ged Robinson. He was the first Hurricane to be selected before he has made his provincial debut.

Toomaga-Allen made his All Black debut against Japan in 2013 but has failed to add to his debut international cap since, despite being a consistent performer for the Hurricanes and making 69 Super Rugby appearances for the Wellington based-side.

The powerful tighthead took his Super Rugby cap tally to 86 in 2017 and earned a call-up to the All Blacks squad for the November Test he represented the All Blacks against the Barbarians and France XV.
