Michael Paterson

Paterson was born in Christchurch and raised in Hororata, before attending Christ's College where he started his rugby career at Centre.

He represented New Zealand Under-21 in 2006 and made his Canterbury debut in the Air New Zealand Cup later that year.

His Super 14 debut followed for the Crusaders in 2007 and he went on to play in all but one of the final 11 matches of the 2007 campaign. In 2010 he moved from the Crusaders to the Hurricanes.

Despite being a strong contender to be part of the New Zealand squad Paterson will team up with former Crusaders Casey Laulala and Ben Blair and ex-Hurricane Paul Tito next season.
