Born in Wellington, New Zealand International Paul Whatuira is going into his second season in the Super League. Having joined Huddersfield Giants from Wests Tigers for the 2008 season he made an immediate impact. ‘Fatz’ scored 13 tries in his debut season from the 26 matches he played and walked away with the ‘Coaches Player of the Year’ title. The 27-year-old centre has won the NRL Grand Final twice, with Penrith Panthers and Wests Tigers, and scored a try during the final of the 2005 Tri-Nations when New Zealand defeated Australia 24-0. Whatuira was one of four current and former Giants when the Tigers were crowned champions in 2005 but followed this season up with a forgettable 2006. After being sin-binned during his team’s loss against North Queensland Cowboys, he then missed the rest of the season after picked up a hamstring injury. Whatuira has twice posed naked for charity calendars and is looking to replicate his form of last year during 2009.
