Hurricanes bring in Mafi

The Hurricanes have promoted Taranaki midfield back Lifeimi Mafi to their Super 14 squad from their wider training group.

Mafi comes in to replace Conrad Smith who lasted 5 minutes against the Force on Saturday before breaking his leg. The injury ended Smith’s 2006 Super 14 campaign.

Mafi has New Zealand sevens experience but the Smith loss wont be felt too hard by the Hurricanes as they still have Tane Tu’ipulotu, Tana Umaga and Ma’a Nonu in midfield.
