Beauden Barrett

Taranaki born and bred, Beauden Barrett made his ITM Cup provincial debut in 2010. He has played for the All Blacks Sevens and was a member of the New Zealand Under 20 side that won the won the 2011 IRB Junior World Championship.

A mercurial player, Barrett was New Zealand’s top individual points scorer in the 2014 Investec Super Rugby competition, with 209 points for the season. He was in similar impressive form for the All Blacks in 2014. Regurlarly brought on from the bench to spark the backline, he has also shown his ability to run the game from the kickoff with three starts against Argentina and South Africa this year.

The game is in his genes: his father Kevin also played for both Taranaki and the Hurricanes and his brothers Kane and Scott and cousin Neesha have all played first-class rugby
