Scott Barrett

Athletic, young lock Scott Barrett joined the All Blacks for the Vista Northern Tour as injury cover for Samuel Whitelock. The 2013 New Zealand Under 20 player of the year, Barrett was in impressive form for the Crusaders in the Investec Super Rugby competition and Canterbury in the Mitre 10 Cup this year. He was one of Canterbury’s best defenders with a tackle success rate over 90 percent, and had 60 carries to his credit throughout the season. He was only 20 when he made his debut for the Crusaders, playing against England during their 2014 tour and although only 22 now, plays with the maturity and vision of a more-experienced player. Scott attended Francis Douglas Memorial College, which as well as producing brothers Beauden and Jordie, was the alma mater of All Blacks midfield legend Conrad Smith.
