Wyatt Crockett

One of New Zealand’s foremost scrummagers and a vital part of the Crusaders and Canterbury front row setups, Wyatt Crockett’s mobility and high workrate around the paddock are comparable to that of a loose forward.

In 2015, he became just the second New Zealand player to reach 150 Super Rugby appearances after being one of the fastest players to bring up his century, which showed his consistency.

In 2011, Crockett was recognised as the New Zealand Investec Super Rugby Player of the Year following an electrifying performance that saw him earn a call-up into the All Blacks squad for the All Blacks v Fiji Test and the New Zealand Investec Tri Nations matches.

Once considered a rising star among New Zealand front-row ranks, Wyatt Crockett boasts considerable international experience at both age-group and senior level, having been a member of the New Zealand sides that won the Under-19 World Cup in Italy in 2002, and the Under-21 World Cup in Scotland two years later.

He also featured consecutively in the Junior All Blacks teams of 2006 and 2007.

The 13th Crusade provided the well-regarded prop with a special memory: Crockett rammed his way across against the NSW Waratahs to score his maiden Super rugby try.  He'd had to be patient, as it came in his 32nd match for the Crusaders. He then added a second career try during the 18-10 win over the Sharks.

He enjoyed an outstanding 2008 Air New Zealand Cup for Canterbury where he often had the upper hand over his front-row opposite and was considered unlucky not to make the end-of-year All Blacks tour.

Crockett celebrated his 50th cap for the Crusaders in the hard-fought 13-10 victory over the Sharks in Durban.

In 2011 Crockett had a stellar Investec Super Rugby season, part of a Crusaders scrum that was arguably the strongest in the tournament.

He was called up to the All Blacks 2011 squad as injury cover for Tony Woodcock.
