Liam Coltman played his fifth season for Otago in 2014 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 forth Investec Super Rugby campaign in 2015. 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. Liam was awarded for his work in the 2014 season by receiving a place in the All Blacks squad in May. When Liam isn’t playing rugby he likes to spend his time surfing, fishing and hunting.
