Since making his debut for the Highlanders in 2013, he has gone on to make more than 100 appearances for the franchise – a testament to his consistency and work ethic. That work ethic has also caught the eye of the All Blacks selectors, with Coltman making his debut for the national side in 2016.
Known for his strength at the breakdown, Coltman has the size and technique to turn ball over. In recent years he’s added to his skillset – most notably his footwork and the odd offload – to earn a recall in the 2019 All Blacks squad.
Born and raised in Taranaki, Coltman played first XV rugby alongside none other than Beauden Barrett.
When not playing rugby Coltman enjoys surfing, fishing and spending time with his young family.
