Jordan Manihera (born 8 May 1993) is a New Zealand rugby union player who currently plays as a flanker for North Harbour in the ITM Cup[2][3] and the Blues in Super Rugby.[4][5]


Manihera is a native of Auckland, and came up through the ranks at his local club North Harbour, captaining their Under 20 side to the 2012 North Championship title.[5] He debuted for Harbour in a victory over Tasman in 2012 and went on to establish himself as a regular during the 2013 ITM Cup, where he made a total of 8 appearances accompanied by 2 tries.[3]

Although not initially selected in either the Blues regular squad or wider training group for the 2014 Super Rugby season, an injury to young, Auckland flanker Joe Edwards saw Manihera take his place.[5] He was penciled in for a first super rugby game when the Blues took on the Crusaders in their second match of the season, however captain Luke Braid recovered from injury to take his place in the starting fifteen.[6] He was also later named in the Blues 27-man group for their 2 match tour of South Africa.[7]


Manihera was a part of the New Zealand Under-20 squad which competed in the 2013 IRB Junior World Championship in France.[8][9][10]
