Biography

The Swiss-born Palmerston North-raised midfielder joined the club from Central League champions Western Suburbs prior to the 2013/14 Hyundai A-League season. After finishing up with the NZ U17 team at the 2013 World Cup he moved down to Wellington to link up with his teammates, making his debut in February 2014. In late 2015 the midfielder was involved in a heavy tackle in a Premiership match against Team Wellington which side-lined him for eight-months with a broken ankle. Rufer returned in Round 1 of the 2016/17 season, in a season which saw him receive minutes with the All Whites, and ended with a call up to the Confederations Cup side which played in Russia. Having now been capped at all levels for NZ, Rufer heads into his fifth season with the club looking to add to his current Phoenix caps and stake his claim as a starting XI player.
