Jesse is hard-working winger/fullback from Tauranga in New Zealand’s Bay of Plenty region. A dedicated, “safe” team player, he is a committed clubman with a strong training ethic and excellent communication, crucial to playing Fullback at the level he does.

Good vision and with an eye for reading the game, he is not afraid to back his own ability but equally knows when to pick his moments. A lifetime backline player, he has played wing/fullback throughout his rugby career. A competent kicker in general play, he is safe and not afraid to compete for the high ball. Jesse is also a sold defender and directs his team mates with confidence in defence.

Playing for Te Puna Rugby Club in the Bay of Plenty competition, he has also played in the Bay Development side in 2018. Seeking his first season abroad, Jesse will be a good pick up for a club seeking a very competitive back three addition for 2019-20.
