Willis Halaholo

6th Jul 1990 1.81m/103kg Outside Centre

Halaholo was selected by Hurricanes coaching management following an excellent ITM Cup season for Southland where he topped many of the competition's offensive statistics.

As a physical midfielder, Halaholo will be looking to learn and develop his game alongside experienced teammates Conrad Smith and Ma'a Nonu this season.

Back in his high school days, Halaholo was a key member of the extremely successful Mt Albert Grammar 1st XV in 2010, along with fellow Hurricanes newcomer, Iopu Iopu-Aso.

Willis Halaholo joined Cardiff Blues in the autumn of 2016 after taking centre-stage in the Hurricanes march to the Super Rugby title in New Zealand.

He heads into the 2018/19 season having made 41 appearances for Cardiff and has scored 60 points.

He went into the 2018/2019 Champions Cup tournament with 11 European Cups appearances scoring 1 try and 5 points.

In November 2019, he was named in Wales 35-man squad that would take on the Barbarians as one of 5 uncapped players but a week later was withdrawn following an ACL injury he picked up in Round 2 of Europe
