A season of consistency in 2016 for the Chiefs, Brad is looking to continue to shine in the exciting Chiefs backline. - The Chiefs
Brad will look to push on in 2017 after a great consistent year in 2016 for the Chiefs.
2015 was a huge year for talented halfback Brad Weber. He had a solid season with the Chiefs and earned his All Blacks debut against Samoa and also played for the Maori All Blacks.
The 2015 Waikato ITM Cup captain was a key performer in Waikato’s successful challenge of the Ranfurly Shield which saw them take if off Weber’s 2016 Provincial Union team Hawke’s Bay. The dynamic game changer picked up three awards at the Waikato Rugby Awards including ITM Cup Player of the Year, Sportsperson of the Year and the Supreme Award – the Ian Clarke Trophy.
Weber is a former Junior World Cup Champion having won the title with the New Zealand U20s side in 2011.
