Another New Zealander to pull on the red and black with the San Diego Legion in 2019 is experienced scrummager Liam Hallam-Eames. At 2 meters tall, Hallam-Eames is a threat in the line out as well as scrums and lends a big target for a no. 9 seeking a bruising ball-carrier. A native of the Kapiti coast, the 24-year old joined the Wellington RFU Academy in the summer of 2013, occupied the second-row with Oriental-Rongotai in 2014, and eventually joined the Manawatu Turbos in 2016. With experience wearing the no. 8 jersey, Liam presents a versatile member to the Legion’s forward squad and a valuable jumper at lineouts.
