An exciting young talent, Francis Saili has a huge amount of potential and will be looking to deliver on it in 2014 after an impressive season with the Blues in 2013.

A former New Zealand Under-20 representative, Saili made his All Blacks debut against Argentina in 2013 but will be disappointed he was overtaken by Ryan Crotty on the end of year tour and will be keen to regain his place.

He is very physical, a consistent line breaker and has a strong passing game off both hands. He is the younger brother of Blues number eight Peter Saili.
