Chiefs give flyer Pulu a Super Rugby contract

The Chiefs have announced that 2015 wider training squad member Toni Pulu has
earned a squad contract for the 2016 Super Rugby season.

The winger who spent the first part of the 2015 season recovering from shoulder
surgery and ankle problems has signed for the next year.

man in our squad, Toni has the skill set and mindset to be a force at Super

with his club Bombay said “I enjoyed the Chiefs environment and love working
