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 that saw him take part in all 17 Super Rugby games for the Highlanders in 2018. Lienert-Brown was a member of the 2013 New Zealand U20 team that played in the 2013 IRB Junior World Championship in France.
Rugby runs in the family with younger brother Anton Lienert-Brown being a member of the Chiefs since 2014.
