The powerful prop stands at 1.81m tall and 125kg and is another versatile front rower that has the ability to play on both sides of the scrum.
Representing the villages of Falelatai and Saleimoa in Samoa, Brighouse is a positive character that lifts his teammates on and off the field. The thirty-year-old is another great addition for Moana Pasifika that has already shown he belongs on a Super Rugby Pacific roster.
