Scott Barrett will add to Canterbury's lock stocks in his third season this year.  The 22 year old has rugby in his blood.  His father, Kevin "Smiley" Barrett, played over 100 games for Taranaki and 33 matches for the Hurricanes in 1997 and 1998.  His older brothers Kane and Beauden play for Taranaki, the Blues and Hurricanes respectively and Beauden is also a current All Black.  Younger brothers Blake and Jordie have both represented Taranaki in age grade rugby. Cousin, Neesha, is the captain of the Taranaki Women's NPC team.  
Like his brothers, Scott played his schoolboy rugby for Francis Douglas Memorial College and was a standout performer in their first XV.  After an impressive first season with Canterbury in 2014, he earned a place in the Crusaders squad in 2015 and provided some real competition for their All Black locks. He has also played for the New Zealand Under 20s.
He is an athletic lock who has a great skill set and can also play at flanker.
