Alex Hodgman

Hodgman joins the Canterbury squad for his third season.  He is a graduate of the Canterbury Rugby Academy and was also in the 2015 Crusaders Wider Training Group.
He represented Fiji in the Under 20 tournament in South Africa in 2012 and impressed New Zealand selectors enough to then be selected in the NZ U20 side in 2013, playing his first match against his old teammates in the world championship opener between NZ and Fiji in France.
He suffered a season-ending shoulder injury in 2013 but recovered to play an impressive first season with Canterbury. He also impressed Crusaders selectors enough to be promoted to a full squad member for this year's Super Rugby season, so his is a star on the rise.
Canterbury Head Coach Scott Robertson said he is a big, athletic prop who has a bright future ahead of him.
