The newest addition to the toughest membership in the world is Brodie Retallick. The All Blacks lock has had a successful career with many accolades and can now add centurion to that list.
His international career began on the 9th of July 2012 as the All Blacks faced Ireland on home turf and won convincingly. Brodie started the game alongside fellow centurion Sam Whitelock in a locking combination, a pairing that would become regularly used by the All Blacks and was even used today in the match against England. Brodie instantly became a regular for the All Blacks, as he is today, playing 13 games in the 2012 season. In 2014 he played 12 games for the national side and his performances were good enough to earn him the World Rugby Player of the Year, he is one of five All Black to have won the award all of which are centurions.
2015 also proved successful for Brodie as New Zealand went on to win the world cup, Retallick played well and completed the full 80 minutes in the quarter-final, semi-final and the final. Brodie has played a large part in the success of the All-Blacks over the last decade including multiple triumphs in the Rugby Championship and the team winning the Laureus Team of the year in 2016.
Congratulations Brodie and may many more caps follow.
