Anton Lienert-Brown

Lively midfielder Anton Lienert-Brown was first called into the All Blacks squad for the 2016 Investec Rugby Championship as an injury replacement, a justified reward for his consistent form earlier in the year for the Chiefs during the Super season.
By year end, he had nine Test appearances alongside his name, and he added 11 more Test appearances in 2018.
 
The 23 year old made his Investec Super Rugby debut in 2014, was also part of the New Zealand Under 20 side that year and the champion side in 2015. Last season he scored a try for Waikato which helped secure the Ranfurly Shield and he ended up playing in every match for the Mooloos.
 
Lienert-Brown was born and raised in Christchurch, where he attended notable rugby school Christchurch Boys’ High School (more than 40 All Blacks have ties to the school). His older brother Daniel is also playing Super Rugby, for the Highlanders.
 
He has studied Sports and Leisure at Waikato University and has ample time to continue his studies, having signed a long-term contract with New Zealand Rugby through to 2020.
