Tawera Kerr-Barlow

STRONG AND TOUGH, Kerr-Barlow has had an impressive season with the Chiefs where he has benefitted from the team’s dominance at scrum time and his powerful pass and skill with the ball in hand have been evident.

The young player, who could be one of the first born in the 1990s to make his debut for the All Blacks, is yet another product of New Zealand’s extremely successful Under 20 side, taking part in the 2010 Junior World Championship win in Argentina, and was a New Zealand Schools player as well.
