Biography

Sam led the charge for the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs as they went all the way to the NRL grand final last year. He was named the Dally M ‘Prop of the Year’ in the process and finished the season with a Test debut for the Kiwis in Townsville. Four of his Bulldog teammates - Greg Eastwood, Krisnan Inu, Sam Perrett and Frank Pritchard – were alongside him for his first international.

 

Injuries slowed Sam’s start to 2013 and saw him miss April’s Test match in Canberra, but as he has come back into form, so have the Bulldogs.

 

Sam attended Auckland’s Mt Albert Grammar School, as did Sonny Bill Williams, Thomas Leuluai and Sam McKendry.
