We are excited to welcome back Dan for his 3rd season with SD Legion.

Dan has an impressive rugby pedigree with his career beginning in NZ, where he played all his NPC (National Provincial Championship) rugby for the Northland Taniwha. He then went on to represent the Auckland Blues and Otago Highlanders in the Super 14 competition, before he made the move to Japan to play for Munakata Sanix Blues rugby team. Before Dan left NZ he gained international honors when he was selected to represent the NZ Maori All Black team from 2014-2017.

“Dan is a valued member of Legion on and off the field and we look forward to his return. His ability to cover all 3 loose forward positions is special and his rugby IQ is 2nd to none making him invaluable to our 2023 campaign” from Head Coach Danny Lee

“Really looking forward to a big year with SD this year. It’s a pretty special place with an awesome crew! Big things coming “ From Dan
