Anton Segner is a German rugby union player who plays for the Tasman Mako in New Zealand 's domestic Mitre 10 Cup competition. His position of choice is Flanker.

The 19-year-old came on in the 51st minute of Tasman Mako's 47:10 home win against Southland Stags. "Now I feel good, definitely. I'm surrounded by a lot of very good teammates. We're like a family," said Segner.

At the beginning of the season, Segner had signed a two-year contract with the defending champion of the Mitre10 Cup who played in Nelson. The competition is the highest in New Zealand rugby. Nevertheless, he had to wait until matchday 7 for his debut.

Segner drew attention to himself: His first action was a sovereign win of the ball on the alley - part of a planned move that ended with the decisive attempt by the Tonganese international Fetuli Paea. For Tasman, the action was the turning point in the game.

Segner learned rugby as a teenager at SC Frankfurt in 1880. At the age of 15, his New Zealand coach Tim Manawatu sent him to Nelson College, where he received a scholarship and later even played on the national school team for New Zealand. His dream is to work for the All Blacks, the country's famous national team.
