Jake Paringatai started his Super Rugby career with the Crusaders back in 2007 after making his domestic debut for Northland in the NPC back in 2003.  A hard-nosed loose forward, Paringatai has been plying his trade in the Japanese Top League over the past few seasons.  He will join a Highlanders forward pack that has plenty of experience and he will be a good fit for the men from the South.
