Cullen Grace was the youngest player to be named in any of the New Zealand Super Rugby squads for 2020. 

A former UC Championship player for Timaru Boys’ High School, Grace represented New Zealand Secondary Schools’, Canterbury Under 19, and the New Zealand Under 20 side. He was also a member of the Crusaders Academy. 

The Hawera-born loose forward can also play lock, and debuted for Canterbury in the 2019 Mitre 10 Cup. Alongside Dallas McLeod, he was awarded the Canterbury Rugby A First Year Player at the Canterbury Rugby Awards in October 2019, and went on to be named in the Crusaders 2020 Super Rugby squad the following month. 

Following a standout debut season for the Crusaders, Cullen was selected in the All Blacks squad in 2020 and became All Black #1192, making  his debut against Australia in Brisbane.
