Old Collegian, New Maori All Black

Old Collegian Marcel Renata has done himself proud recently debuting with the Maori All Blacks. Since graduating from King’s College in 2011 and then joining the Auckland University Team, the imposing and hard-working player has continued to impress both coaches and selectors. 

Auckland University Head Coach Dean Bickerton said Renata was driven from the get-go. The tighthead prop's build also contributes to his power on the field and has earned him the nickname Maori Hercules.

This year Marcel has helped his University team to the Auckland premier rugby playoffs and, despite losing one of their key players, his teammates have been completely behind him in his international debut.
