Rudi Wulf

2nd Feb 1984 1.82m/91kg Outside Centre

Rudi Wulf joined Toulon on a two-year contract after being left out of the 2010 All Black Tri Nations squad. He previously played for North Harbour in the Air New Zealand Cup and the Auckland-based Blues in the Super 14 competition.

On 1 June 2008, Rudi became a New Zealand All Black for the first time. However, playing in France means he was no longer be eligible to play for the All Blacks. Wulf is regarded as a three quarter, in that he can play wing, fullback and outside centre.

His promising career almost ended before it began when, in June 2005, he suffered a serious injury by diving into the shallow end of a swimming pool and fracturing vertebrae in his neck. He has since made a full recovery.

He played in the 2013 Heineken Cup final which saw his team beat Clermont by 16 points to 15.

As of the 2018/2019 Champions Cup, Wulf has had 24 European Cups appearances scoring 3 tries.

Wulf signed at deal with Lyon in 2016 and, after 51 appearances for the side, was offered a contract extension until 2020.
