Tawera Kerr-Barlow Chiefs Halfback
About Tawera Kerr-Barlow
Tawera Kerr-Barlow (born 15 August 1990) is a New Zealand rugby union footballer. His regular playing position is halfback. He plays for the Chiefs in Super Rugby and Waikato in the ITM Cup. Kerr-Barlow represented New Zealand under 20 in the 2010 IRB Junior World Championship.
One of the most exciting of the modern crop of number nines in New Zealand rugby, Tawera Kerr-Barlow has earned a reputation for bruising defence, clinical clearances and his ability to make a nuisance of himself in classic halfback fashion. However, a serious knee injury in the Test against South Africa in October 2014 kept him out of rugby for over eight months.
Kerr-Barlow was part of the New Zealand Under 20 side that won the Junior World Championship in Argentina in 2010. Rugby and sport are strong in the Melbourne-born Kerr-Barlow’s family. His mother Gail represented Australia in rugby and his uncle Tukere Barlow played league for New Zealand Maori.
