Jordan Trainor

Fullback

Jordan Trainor, 26, is a classy fullback with a potent mix of speed, footwork and Kiwi cunning on attack.

Trainor’s 2021 season was largely wiped out by COVID-19 lockdown rules in New Zealand so he’s a player hungry for top rugby again in his first experience of MLR.

He won a 2018 Mitre 10 Cup title with Auckland so he knows what winning looks like. Played twice for the Blues in Super Rugby the same year. Enjoys an attacking game plan which was one of the attractions when he signed for the Giltinis.
