Biography

Otahuhu winger/fullback represented NZ in 1995’s World Cup competition whilst playing with Sydney club Cronulla. Barnett played in two Super League Tests in 1997 but joined the Roosters in the NRL in 1999 and led NZ in the Tri-series competition at the end of year. He suffered a shocking injury in the 2000 ANZac Day Test, breaking numerous facial bones when tackling Australia’s Wendell Sailor. The injury put him out for the remainder of the season – including Easts’ loss to Brisbane in the grand final. A veteran of 26 Tests for his country, Barnett captained the Kiwis in the World Cup in October 2000 (from fullback!) before linking with the London Broncos (2001-03), Hull (2003-05) and Warrington (2006).
