In 2020, the Hurricanes want to prevent Jordie Barrett from becoming a victim of his versatility.
With the departure of older brother Beauden during the off-season, there have been suggestions that Barrett would be a surprise choice to don the Hurricanes No 10 jersey.
Having lined up on the wing, at fullback and in the midfield for the Hurricanes last season, Barrett has been an asset for the team in his short tenure. Now, he’s shown there’s another string to his bow, having lined up for the All Blacks in the No 10 jersey during the World Cup.
But while it’s all well and good to rely on his ability to cover anywhere in the back line, the Hurricanes want to put their young star in the best position to stake his claim to a starting role in the national side.
“We want to give Jordie every chance to be the 15 he is and to push to be the All Blacks 15,” Hurricanes assistant coach Jason Holland said.
