Will Jordan

A Crusaders recruit in 2018, Will Jordan was a standout performer for the 2017 World Champion New Zealand Under 20 squad.


In 2015, he played for the Christchurch Boys' High School First XV, and scored 19 tries in 11 games to finish the UC Championship as the competition's leading try-scorer.


Will played for Canterbury U19 in 2016 and is a product of the Crusaders Academy. He was selected in the Tasman provincial team for the Mitre 10 Cup in 2017, and had a remarkable debut season. He was second only to Braydon Ennor for the number of clean breaks across the season.

Will is dangerous on attack, strong with ball in hand and knows his way to the try line. He was rewarded for his form in 2020 with All Blacks selection, making his debut against the Wallabies in Brisbane and capping off the season with an incredible two tries in two minutes against Argentina in the All Blacks' final Test of the year. 


He reached new heights in 2021, scoring a record of 15 tries in 11 tests, including five against Tonga and a hat-trick against USA which saw him become the second-fastest All Black to reach 15 tries. He was subsequently named World Rugby's Breakthrough Player of the Year.
