Pepesana Patafilo comes to the Crusaders from Wellington, fresh off winning the NPC title. Patafilo made his Hurricanes debut in the 2021 season, making two appearances and scoring one try.
When Pepesana first got a text from Razor to chat about an opportunity at the Crusaders he actually didn’t believe it! He left the message and didn’t reply thinking someone was pulling a prank on him. Thankfully he got Razors voicemail and realised it was the man himself!
