Lee Roy Atalifo is one of thirteen new players named in this season’s Mitre 10 Cup squad. 
A relative late-comer to rugby at the age of 17, Atalifo made a rapid rise up the ranks in Fiji being selected for the Suva districts side in 2012 and was making his international debut for Fiji by 2014. He was a member of the Fijian side that contested the Rugby World Cup in 2015.
He has also played in Italy for Rugby Rovigo Delta, before getting the call-up to join the Canterbury team.
An effective scrummager, Atalifo will further strengthen Canterbury’s formidable front row this season.
