Jarrad Hoeata was called up by the All Blacks during 2011 as their only debutant for that year on the back of a brilliant season with the Highlanders. A physical tight forward who has the ability to play on the blindside flank, Hoeata will continue to add steel to the Highlanders’ pack in 2014 after returning from the Maori All Blacks’ tour of North America.
He has previously represented the Chiefs at Super Rugby level, making his debut against the Lions in 2010 and featured on 13 occasions for the Highlanders last season.
