Half of a formidable centre partnership with Johnny Leota, Tuitupou was once again a key man for the Sharks in 2012-13. As expected, handing over the captaincy to David Seymour had no effect on his commitment to the cause and he was rewarded with a new deal in March. Recruited from Irish giants Munster along with Tony Buckley in 2011, he was a World Cup winner with New Zealand Under-21s and played nine times for the All Blacks. A Super 14 title with the Blues, ‘Hacksaw Sam’ also won the Air New Zealand Cup with Auckland before moving to Worcester in 2007 and onwards to Munster three years later.
