Biography

Liam Coltman played his fourth season for Otago in 2013 and was impressive, whether playing at prop or his preferred position of hooker. The 24-year-old was a member of the New Zealand U20 team that retained the world title in 2010 and will play his third Super Rugby campaign in 2014.

After being elevated from the Wider Training Group in 2013, Coltman has shown himself to be a powerful and abrasive hooker with great commitment and work ethic.

He made 13 appearances for the Highlanders last season, winning 28 lineouts which was second only to Andrew Hore’s 63.
