Quinten Strange

21st Aug 1996 2.00m/108kg No 5 Lock

Strange was raised in the rural community of Collingwood and attended high school at Nelson College during which time he captained their rugby first XV.

He was selected to represent New Zealand for the 2016 World Rugby Under 20 Championship.

He was named in the Tasman Makos squad for the 2016 Mitre 10 Cup aged just 19 and instantly established himself as a first-team regular, making 11 appearances, 10 of which were from the start and bagging 2 tries as the Nelson-based outfit finished runners up in that season's Premiership and was handed a Super Rugby contract by the Crusaders ahead of the 2017 Super Rugby season.

Having yet to make his Super Rugby debut, Strange was named in the Provincial Barbarians side to face the British & Irish Lions in their tour opener in Whangarei on June 3.

Quinten is being coached by his former New Zealand Under-20 coach Scott Robertson who was in his debut season with the Crusaders having formerly coached Canterbury.

In May 2017, Strange was withdrawn from the Provincial Barbarians squad in order to fulfill his Super Rugby commitments.
