Willis Halaholo joined Cardiff Blues in the autumn of 2016 after taking centre-stage in the Hurricanes march to the Super Rugby title in New Zealand.
 
He previously played with Rey Lee-Lo in the Hurricanes’ wider training squad and was recommended to Wales’ Capital Region by the Samoan star.
 
After failing to make the Hurricanes 2016 Super Rugby squad he opted to sign for the Blues and soon forced his way into the Wellington outfit’s top tier squad.
 
The Auckland-born ace enjoyed a stunning breakthrough season, helping the Hurricanes to their first Super Rugby title.
 
He linked up with Danny Wilson’s Cardiff Blues following Waikato’s Mitre Cup campaign and will compete with Lee-Lo, Cory Allen and Garyn Smith for a centre spot.
 
Halaholo is a former New Zealand Schools star, where he played alongside All Blacks Tawera Kerr-Barlow, Elliot Dixon and Charlie Ngatai. He also represented Tonga at the 2009 Junior World Championship.
 
The dynamic centre struggled to break into senior rugby but caught the attention of Southland Stags while playing junior club rugby in 2013 and has never looked back.
 
He enjoyed two impressive seasons with the Stags in Invercargill before being snapped up by the Hurricanes in 2015.
