Matt Proctor

26th Oct 1992 1.80m/93kg Fullback

Matt Procter became one of five members of the Hurricanes squad from the Oriental-Rongotai club in Wellington when he was selected for the first time for the 2013 season.

Proctor has shown he has pace and flair on attack, after completing his debut provincial rugby season in the Capital, in which he played 11 times for the Wellington Lions and scored a hat-trick in an ITM Cup match against Otago. Matt was also a member of the 2012 New Zealand U20 Junior Rugby World Championship side.

He had to wait several games before he made his debut, but made a terrific start to his Super Rugby career by scoring a try on the wing in his first game, on the wing against the Stormers in Palmerston North.

Injury put the brakes on Proctor's second season, but he returned to play the last three matches of 2014 at fullback, while again missing the early part of the ITM Cup before returning to play matches at centre, wing and fullback.

In 2016 he was named in the Maori All Blacks squad starting the matches against USA, Munster and Harlequins.

Proctor's 2017 season was riddled with injury but he still managed to add 7 Super Rugby caps to his total scoring 2 tries.

He was also included in the All Black Maori squad to face the British and Irish Lions. He started the match at outside centre but left the field 10 minutes into the second half with a shoulder injury.

With 43 Hurricanes caps and 8 tries the Maori All Blacks representative adds pace and vision in the midfield and will be looking to bounce back strongly in 2018.


Following a great Super Rugby and Mitre 10 showing in 2018 he earned an All Black call up for the Japan leg of the November Tests
