Daniel Lienert-Brown joined the Highlanders early on in the 2015 season and became a real asset in the front row. Lienert-Brown hails from Christchurch and made his super rugby debut for the Crusaders in 2014 after being called into the team from the wider training group. He is a young, skillful prop who will look to build upon the good performance of last season. Rugby runs in the family with younger brother Anton Lienert-Brown being a member of the Chiefs since 2014. Lienert-Brown was a member of the 2013 New Zealand U20 team that played in the 2013 IRB Junior World Championship in France.
