NZ Rugby World - - The Talent Factory -

Age: 26 // Height: 1.79m // Weight: 90kg Caps: 14 // Starts at No 10: 2 First Cap: 2015 Su­per Rugby Po­si­tion: No 10 Su­per Rugby Sea­sons: 6 Achieve­ments: Su­per Rugby ti­tle 2015 Lima Sopoaga has be­come one of the best game man­agers in New Zealand rugby. That’s his key skill.

He has shown with the High­landers, where he has been a reg­u­lar starter since 2013, that he can fol­low a plan and adapt it as he sees fit.

He reads the game su­perbly and it is this abil­ity which has seen him be­come an All Blacks match-day reg­u­lar since 2016.

He is the back-up to Bar­rett and a more than safe pair of hands to have in re­serve.
