Hikairo can play in the positions of both loosehead prop and hooker. He knows both positions very well, he’s dynamic in scrums and rucks and can expertly carry the ball forward. He has also proven very effective in defence phases (tackling and ball recovery).

As hooker, Hikaïro has been one of the key players of the forwards pack since the 2013-2014 season. In 2015, he extended his contract with our club for two more seasons.

Then, after the 2016-2017 season, both the club and the New Zealand hooker decided to continue their adventure together for two more seasons.
