Though Ron Cribb didn’t start playing rugby until his mid teens, and had been a league player until then, he soon established himself at national levels. From Massey he was chosen for both the national secondary schools side and the under-19s in 1995.

He was a regular Harbour selection at NPC level and in 1998 appeared once in Scotland for the New Zealand Maori and again in 1999 against Fiji.

He began his Super Rugby career with the Crusaders as a draft player from 1999-2000 before returning home to join the Blues from 2001-2003. He also earned 15 caps for the All Blacks. After the 2003 NPC he headed overseas to join Japanese Club Kobelco Steelers until 2008, before shifting to Italy to play his final season with Rugby Rovigo.
