Jordan made his debut for the Crusaders squad for 2013 and is an aggressive defender and dangerous attacker.

Taufua made his professional debut in 2012 in the ITM Cup where he had an outstanding season for Tasman and made a real impact when he joined the Canterbury squad for the semi-final and final.

Taufua was also part of the Junior All Blacks team which competed in the 2012 IRB Junior World Championship.

Coach's Notes

“One of the best impact players in Super Rugby. He makes a huge difference when he comes on, whether that's carrying the ball or shifting bodies. We are looking forward to unleashing him this season.”
