Seconds represented Western Province from Under-17 level and went on a Springbok A tour to Argentina and played Springbok Sevens from 2001 to 2007, while Barrett first represented Western Province at Under-15 level and went on to captain the Springbok Women’s team, playing 15s, Sevens and SA Women’s Touch Rugby.
