Biography

Josh debuted for the Kiwis in the ANZAC Test at Eden Park in 2012. He was raised in Australia, but chose to represent the country of his Māori father.

Josh plays at the Brisbane Broncos, where the Kiwis coach Stephen Kearney (who is the Broncos assistant coach) can keep an especially close eye on him. In 2013, Stephen has seen Josh score more tries than any other Bronco.

Fullback has been Josh’s position with the Kiwis, but the Broncos have mostly used him on the wing this season. He prefers to be in the number 1 jersey though and will be looking to hold onto that throughout RLWC2013.

When not scoring tries or returning the ball (he averaged 146m per game for the Broncos last year), Josh can be found trying to convince people of his likeness to the actor Jamie Foxx. Josh’s first cousin is the Newcastle Knights centre Dane Gagai.
