Flying Point Chevalier winger Dennis Key played one Test against the 1969 Australian tourists.

The diminutive Key debuted for New Zealand Māori in 1967 and broke into the Auckland team the following season.

Despite not being selected for a New Zealand under-23s tour earlier in 1969, Key was picked on the wing for the series opener against Australia. But he made way for debutant Phil Orchard after the 20-10 loss at Carlaw Park.

While further Kiwis opportunities eluded him, Key remained a valued clubman for Point Chevalier and later Glenora after switching the halves, as well as being a mainstay for New Zealand Māori.

Key played his last match for New Zealand Māori against France in 1981 – 14 years after first representing.
