Formerly of the Chiefs, prop Siate Takolahi, strengthened the Highlanders' prop stocks in 2017 and has since accumulated 67 Super Rugby Caps. Tokolahi sustained a significant knee injury that kept him out of the back end of the 2018 Super Rugby season and the entire Mitre 10 Cup season. However, came back in 2019 with an impressive season where he stamped his named in the starting side. A strong scrummaging exponent who will be looking forward to packing down after the long enforced break.
