Kieran Read made his All Blacks debut in 2008 and has since won the Rugby World Cup on two
occasions; he is one of just 20 players to have won the title twice.
The IRB Player of the Year in 2013, Read has had the distinct honour of captaining New
Zealand 43 times to date. He has scored 25 tries during his international career, making him the
most prolific international forward currently playing the sport.
Read has won 118 caps for the All Blacks, putting him third on the nation’s all time most capped
list. He is set to retire from international duty after the 2019 Rugby World Cup.
