Michael (26) is a well respected prop who has a high work rate, excellent ball carrying skills and can play both sides of the scrum equally well. He qualifies to play for Ireland through his maternal grandmother.
Bent recently played for Taranaki in their semi-final defeat to Canterbury in New Zealand’s ITM Cup and has also played 5 times for the Hurricanes in the Super 15. He was the only Taranaki forward to appear in all 13 of Taranaki’s first class matches this season.
From all at BSMG we wish Michael the very best in his future career.
