Liam 'The Beast' Coltman enters his 5th Super Rugby season for the Highlanders in 2017 and is an impressive athlete, whether playing at prop or his preferred position of hooker. 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 was rewarded for his work in the 2016 with inclusion in the squad for the All Blacks's end of year tour. When not playing rugby, Coltman enjoys surfing, fishing and hunting and rarely wears long pants, even during the cold Dunedin winters.
