Comfortable in the back-three or at fly-half, he has represented Bay of Plenty in the Mitre10 Cup, playing alongside former Warrior Hugh Blake.

Forbes was also part of the New Zealand U20 squad for the 2019 World Rugby U20 Championship in Argentina, playing in all three of the junior All Blacks’ group games.

He made his Glasgow Warriors debut in February 2021, starting on the wing against Leinster just days after agreeing a full-time contract with the Scotstoun squad.
