Biography

Patrick Osborne made his ITM Cup debut for Canterbury in 2010. A broken collarbone limited the Fijian winger's 2012 season, but he returned to Canterbury after gaining valuable Super Rugby experience with the Chiefs in 2013 which included a debut against his current team, the Highlanders, in Dunedin. After joining the Highlandrs in 2014 Osborne's impressive showing as a big, strong and elusive winger led to him being a regular starter in the team, despite suffering an injury in the first game. In 2016 Patrick represented Fiji during the international test match break and has spent time in Japan in the off-season.
