Bio

Jordie Barrett burst onto the Investec Super Rugby scene in 2017 with a breakout season at fullback.

After gaining an opportunity due to an injury to Nehe Milner-Skudder, Barrett showed he was physically and mentally ready, playing 17 matches and scoring 133 points in his debut season before being selected in the All Blacks.

He was injured during the All Blacks series against the British and Irish Lions and had surgery before returning to Super Rugby in 2018.

The younger brother of Beauden, Jordie went on to play an important part of the 2018 campign as he covered a number of positions, including moving into the midfield when injuries struck.

Barrett is also a very accomplished goal kicker and had scored 189 points by the end of the 2018 Super Rugby season.

He had extended that points record to 212 by round eight of 2019 while also adding to his versatility value by starting several times on the wing.
