The Ambassador

Kevin Barrett

  • Captained England during the 2009-10 HSBC 7s series
  • Over 100 appearances for Exeter Chiefs
  • Current Saracens strength and conditioning coach

Kevin Barrett is a former England 7s captain and scrum half for London Irish, Exeter Chiefs and Saracens.

A graduate of Stonyhurst College in Lancashire, Kev initially joined London Irish but with few first team opportunities he made the switch to Exeter Chiefs at the same time as their move to Sandy Park.  After 5 successful seasons including promotion to the Premiership, Kev moved back to the south east to add to Saracens excellent array of scum halfs at the time including Neil De Kock and Richard Wigglesworth.  The intense competition in that position allowed Kev more time to spend playing 7s where he successfully captained England to a famous victory in the Wellington Sevens; a competition where England had previously failed to prosper. 

At 32, Kev took the difficult decision to hang up his boots and is now back at Saracens working in their strength and conditioning team.
