NZ Rugby World

Alex Hodgman [Blues]


The former Mount Albert Grammar School pupil has taken his time to fulfil his obvious potential. He shifted South after he left school representi­ng Fiji at the Junior World Championsh­ip in 2012 and then New Zealand in 2013.

He was on the fringes of the Crusaders team for four years without ever quite breaking into a regular start. It was a shift back to the Blues in 2017 and a prolonged injury-free run that saw him deliver the all action rugby he was renowned for as a junior.

Has been rock solid at set-piece this year and a good contributo­r around the field.
