Ben Tapuai is a dynamic player, capable at both inside and outside centre. The cappedWallaby joins the Force for the 2016 and 2017 seasons after seven successful years with Queensland Reds, including the 2011 Super Rugby title. The 27-year-old has made a name for himself as a powerful ball-runner, sound distributor and deft kicker with his left boot. An invaluable utility member, Tapuai injects significant experience into a young Force backline, along with fellow new recruits Peter Grant and Jono Lance. Tapuai’s try-scoring ability was on full display when he bagged a double for the Barbarians against Samoa.
