A New Zealand Schools representative and product of well-known rugby nursery St Kentigern’s College, Tauakipulu has been part of the NSW Waratahs since the 2020 Super Rugby season. Despite his upbringing on the other side of the Tasman, the promising front rower has an impressive frame and is a well-regarded scrummager. The 115kg Tighthead Prop has played for the Kenmore Bears and Randwick and crafted his skills beyond belief. The Tahs are excited to see him cut some teeth in the 2023 Super Rugby Competition.
