Biography

Kiwi Test prop who made his international debut against Australia in 1967 landed six goals in NZ's shock 24-3 win over Australia at Carlaw Park in 1971. Tatana came to C’bury in the early 1970s but his relegation to reserve before the club's grand final loss to Easts in 1974 was indicative of his problems in cementing a first grade spot. Shifting to St George he kicked the Dragons into the 1975 grand final after narrow semi-finals wins over Manly and Easts. Tatana took his place in the St George team thrashed by the Roosters in the grand final but later took on a captain-coach position with Cessnock. A former president of the Cessnock club (1984-86) Tatana passed away suddenly in Brisbane in June 1998, at the age of 53.

Your Say

Garrick Hale says: Prior to the Third test in Sydney (1966, 1967?) the NZ players were staying at the Cecil Hotel, Cronulla. Henry, along with 2 other players, attended Sylvania Hts Primary School for a coaching clinic. Our choir teacher sent a message to Henry asking if he would teach the pupils a song. I said to him that she (the Teacher) was only joking, but he asked did we have a guitar. The result was every pupil at the school could sing Hoki Mai (spelling?), the whole 300 of them. What a man!
