Connor McLeod - Turf Manager Havelock North

Connor joined our team some years ago to assist us in School holidays and now that he has completed his studies, he has joined us full time.  An extremely fast learner and one of the youngest members of our 21 people squad, Connor has embraced turf management like it is something he has been reciting for years.

Apart from being a turfie, Connor completed his fourth year of study at the University of Otago in 2019, completing a Bcom, majoring in Marketing Management. His academic record shows that he is resilient and persistent and dedicated. He is also pursuing a goal of playing professional rugby - which isn’t easy on top of work. Last year he played in the Mitre 10 Cup Premiership for Otago and this year he is trialing for the Hurricanes Development squad in the half back role. Needless to say his rugby committments don't leave much time for anything else but thankfully Connor is super organised and has plenty of ticker which helps sort out his busy schedule.

Outside of work and rugby, Connor has 3 brothers who he often challenges to a round of golf. He likes surfing when he gets a moment and also a spot of skiing in the winter months.
