Laghlan McWhannell

20th Oct 1998 1.98m/114kg No 4 Lock

A young up and coming second rower shone for the New Zealand u20s in 2018 which was followed by a strong Mitre 10 Cup season with Waikato.

McWhannell represented the New Zealand Schools and got a taste of Chiefs rugby at the Brisbane 10s tournament in 2018.

At the end of 2018 he was added to the Chiefs' Super Rugby squad for the 2019 season where he will look to make his debut in 2019.

McWhannell is yet to make his debut, but is a promising player to watch with exciting talent which will only develop under the guidance of experienced locks within the Gallagher Chiefs.
