Biography:

Martin Taupau is the enforcer and leader of the Sea Eagles pack.

Nick-named 'Kapow', Taupau is one of the game's strongest front-rowers who makes plenty of great metres each week.

A player with a great offload and ability to break tackles, Taupau's experience of over 200 NRL games is perfect for the younger props in the team such as Taniela Paseka and Sean Keppie.
