Now a veteran of two Rugby World Cups, Barnes became the 37th Australian to earn his 50th Test cap against Wales in the final match of the 2012 season.

The 2013 season will be Barnes' fourth season at the Waratahs. An accomplished goal kicker, Barnes overtook Lote Tuquiri (148) to become the seventh highest points' scorer in NSW Super Rugby history with 158 points in the 2012 round 17 loss to the Brumbies at ANZ Stadium.

A former rugby league star, Barnes has long been a favourite with NSW and Australian rugby fans, his popularity as much down to his down to earth attitude and willingness to sign every last autograph, as his impressive on field skills.

He is currently studying his Bachelor of Arts (English/Modern History) at Macquarie University via Open Universities Australia with the aim of persuing a career as a high school teacher in English/Modern History after rugby.
