Chris Jack

A mainstay of Canterbury and Crusaders packs since 1999, Chris Jack has grown into a world-class lock and a vital player in the All Blacks’ engine room. An outstanding athlete, Jack is an excellent lineout jumper and covers the ground like a loose forward. Formed a strong partnership with Ali Williams during the 2005 season and together the pair played a key role in the All Blacks’ DHL NZ Lions Series and Philips Tri Nations triumphs. One of five players to participate in all six of the Philips Tri Nations matches in 2006, Jack brought up 50 test caps when he took the field against Australia in Christchurch. He was a member of the Crusaders development side that won the first ever (NZ) Super 12 Development competition. Teammates from that team included Ben Blair and Aaron Mauger. He followed his elder brother and mentor Graham into the second row of the Canterbury and Crusaders teams.
