BIOGRAPHY

The son of former All Blacks captain Todd Blackadder, Ethan hails from North Canterbury originally but attended Nelson College.

Blackadder was called into the Tasman provincial team in 2016 after a stellar club season. He became a regular starter for Tasman in 2017 as they made their way to the Premiership Final and in 2019, Blackadder helped the side secure its first provincial title. With the ability to play both lock and in the loose forwards, the versatile player made his Crusaders debut in 2018 and has 20 appearances for the Super side.

He made his Test debut against Tonga at Mt Smart Stadium in 2021.
