Anthony Tuitavake

Auckland-born Anthony Tuitavake burst onto the international national rugby scene as a fleet-footed 19-year-old in the All Blacks Sevens team in 2001,

A year later Tuitavake would be a Commonwealth Games Sevens Gold medallist in Manchester and his rise to the All Blacks seemed inevitable. He would go on to play six Tests for the All Blacks in 2008.

Blessed with an eye-catching side-step and explosive power off the mark, Tuitavake was equally as potent in the midfield or on the wing and feared for his fearless front on tackling.

He was a junior World Cup winner with the New Zealand Under 19s in 2001 and represented the New Zealand Under 21s in 2002 before making a seemingly inevitable rise through Super Rugby to the All Blacks.
He played Super Rugby, first for the Highlanders in 2005, then for the Blues from 2006 to 2010 and was rewarded for his consistent performances with his first Test cap in 2008.

Tuitavake also represented his province North Harbour 82 times and captained the side in his final season in 2009 before pursing his professional career in Japan and France.
