Brodie Retallick

Brodie Retallick has cemented his status as a world-class lock with a high work rate and uncompromising attitude, as well as his confidence in performing the lock’s core role.
 
The 2014 World Rugby and New Zealand Player of the Year is a first-choice selection for both the Chiefs and the All Blacks.
 
Originally from the North Canterbury town of Amberley, Retallick shifted north to Hawke’s Bay and earned selection in the New Zealand Under 20 side for that team’s 2011 Junior World Championship-winning campaign.
 
He made his Investec Super Rugby debut and All Blacks debut just a few months apart, in 2012.
 
He scored his second Test try against France in the 2015 Rugby World Cup quarterfinal and was the only player from the tight five to score in the nine-try win. He also scored a try in the 57-0 victory over South Africa in 2017.
 
Rugby runs in the family: his uncle John Ashworth is a former All Blacks prop and cousin Culum Retallick has also played Super Rugby.
 
Away from the rugby field, Retallick enjoys cruising in classic cars.
