Leicester Faingaanuku is a star on the rise. The blockbusting outside back is a former Nelson College First XV product, who won the Phillip McDonald Memorial Medal for the UC Championship’s MVP in 2017. He has represented NZ Secondary Schools’, Junior Knights, Crusaders Knights and the NZ Under 20 side.
Leicester made his provincial debut for the Tasman Mako against Otago in 2018 and earned his first appearance for the Crusaders in 2019. He joins a stellar group of outside backs for the Crusaders in 2020.
