Pari Pari Parkinson

12th Sep 1996 2.04m/119kg No 5 Lock

Pari Pari Parkinson joined the Tasman union's wider training group in 2016, having represented the New Zealand Barbarians Schools side.

He was named in the Crusaders Knights squad as part of his ongoing development and played four minutes for the Crusaders' top side in a practise match against the Highlanders in Oamaru in 2016.

He went on to make 2 appearances for Tasman in the 2016 Mitre 10 Cup and was recalled into the squad ahead of the 2017 Mitre 10 Cup.

Parkinson made 5 appearances for Tasman in 2017 and earned a Super Rugby contract with the Highlanders.

Parkinson is deceptively strong for such a tall man and will join his uncle's, Reubin, former side for his debut Super Rugby season.
