Mike Sosene Joins Auckland For Mitre 10 Cup

There will be one more American playing in the Mitre 10 Cup. In addition to Tony Lamborn at Southland Mike Sosene (aka Mike Sosene-Feagai) will be playing for Auckland in the upcoming season. The hooker previously played for the Eagles in the Americas Rugby Championship in 2016 playing in all five games and starting twice. After that he played with the San Diego Breakers in PRO Rugby where he made eleven appearances with six starts. He has previously played for Hawke's Bay in the Mitre 10 Cup.

If he can get a good run of games it could put him back in the Eagles picture. That said, it is going to take something big for him to do that. He would have to be a star for Auckland. Joe Taufete'e is entrenched as the number one option for the U.S. at the moment and then you have the likes of James Hilterbrand, Dylan Fawsitt, and Peter Malcolm all in the picture.
