The three third-generation international rugby players, including a Leicester Tigers legend and All Black

</

3. Liam Barry – New Zealand

Barry holds a special place among the long parade of All Blacks for when he was chosen as a 22-year-old for the tour of Scotland and England in 1993 he followed his father Kevin and his grandfather Ned in wearing the silver fern. That became the first instance of a family providing three generations of All Blacks.

Kevin Barry, his father, was a utility forward and made 23 appearances for the All Blacks between 1962 and 1964, while Ned Barry, his Grandfather played 10 matches for the All Blacks including one international, against Australia in 1934.

Ned also had another son, Pat, who played for Counties in the 1960s, and another grandson, Mike Barry, who represented North Auckland and North Harbour.
