We join one of Canterburys up and coming NRL stars, Zeke Faga-ieti on a training session, to hear more about his journey and his why.

As well as being signed with the Warriors, the 17 year old was also apart of the St Thomas Rugby league side who took out the 2023 Secondary Schools National title. This was an astounding accomplishment for the team, as it was also the first time a South Island school has won in 23 years- taking the shield away from Auckland!
