STEPHEN PEROFETA [BLUES]

-

Strengths: Was a player of significan­t interest in 2017 and would have gone to Japan with the All Blacks in 2018 but for injury.

Has a tremendous running game and ability to beat defenders with his step and accelerati­on. A natural ball player with good instincts to back himself to run. Has a bit of magic about him.

Weaknesses: Has suffered a long run of injuries and seems happier now playing at fullback where his running game can bet better utilised.

Doesn’t appear to be a great game manager or supremely composed when he’s put under a bit of pressure. Is not a great kicker either.

Goal Kicking: Erratic.

Is he a future All Black? Probably not as he must be looking at Moana Pasifika as a possible career move.
