Super 15 season.
He has now signed on for another two years with the club.

replaced by Eben Joubert as Otago captain after skippering
the side in 2009-10.
He played for New Zealand juniors and the New Zealand sevens
team, winning a Commonwealth Games gold medal in 2006.
Soakai and wife Debbie, who has captained New Zealand at
