    Former Auckland lock, captain of the Junior Kiwis, represented Samoa in the 2000 World Cup competition before shifting to hooker in 2001. Betham, the son of the NZ boxing champion of the same name, represented NZ against France and Australia (as a lock) during the historic 2001 season in which the Warriors qualified for the semi-finals. Although injury interrupted his 2002 season and ruled him out of the Warriors’ historic grand final appearance against the Roosters, Betham played in four Tests on the Kiwi Tour of Great Britain and France at the end of the year.

    Despite the club’s fortunes sliding drastically during 2003-04, Betham continued his Test career with an appearance off the interchange bench in the 48-6 loss to Australia in July 2003 but injury again ruled him out of Test contention the following year.

    He joined Wakefield Trinity in the English Super League in 2006. After his one season with Wakefield he retired from league to start a career in boxing.
