Josh Lord proved his ability to be an asset to the Gallagher Chiefs after his success in the University of Waikato U20's side as well as the New Zealand U20's team.

Following his success in the age-group teams, Lord made his Super Rugby debut for the Gallagher Chiefs against the Crusaders in 2021 and has proved himself as a versatile lock.

Later that year he was named in the All Blacks squad and made his debut against the USA.

An ACL injury in 2022 sidelined Lord for almost a year however he made his return to play during round nine of the 2023 DHL Super Rugby Pacific competition against the Fijian Drua. He went then on to be named in the All Blacks squad once again for the Lipovitan-D Rugby Championship where he started at lock against Argentina.
