Biography

 

Liam Squire has moved south as he enters his fourth Super Rugby season after debuting with the Chiefs (against the Highlanders) in 2014. Selected in the Maori All Black team for their tour of Canada and the United States in 2014 he also helped his provincial side Tasman to the ITM Cup Premiership finals that same year following their promotion from the Championship in 2013. Liam Squire had a stand-out season for the Highlanders in 2016 and quickly became the choice option at No 8. He's hard to stop with ball in hand and equally as devastating on defence. Squire was fortunate enough to make his All Blacks debut in 2016 against Wales. He enjoys hunting and getting outdoors in his spare time.
