One of the most exciting of the modern crop of number nines in New Zealand rugby, Tawera Kerr-Barlow has earned a reputation for bruising defence, clinical clearances and his ability to make a nuisance of himself in classic halfback fashion. However, a serious knee injury in the Test against South Africa in October 2014 kept him out of rugby for over eight months.
Kerr-Barlow was part of the New Zealand Under 20 side that won the Junior World Championship in Argentina in 2010. Rugby and sport are strong in the Melbourne-born Kerr-Barlow’s family. His mother Gail represented Australia in rugby and his uncle Tukere Barlow played league for New Zealand Maori.
