All Blacks and Hurricanes outside back Jordie Barrett has signed a new three-year extension with New Zealand Rugby until 2022.
Under his contract, Barrett also has the option to change Super Rugby clubs at some point post-2020. The 22-year-old said he still had a strong desire to play Super Rugby alongside his brothers at some point in his career, but added that when that would happen remained unclear.
Barrett’s older brother, Beauden, recently also extended his contract with New Zealand Rugby but switched to the Blues, who he will join halfway through next year.
‘There is a really good mix of youth as well as experienced leaders in the Hurricanes squad and I feel like this is the best place to develop my game,’ Jordie Barrett said.
‘Staying in New Zealand rugby is really important to me. I’m enjoying playing alongside my mates, and I’ve got further aspirations and goals I want to reach while I’m playing in New Zealand.’
Hurricanes head coach John Plumtree was delighted Barrett had made the decision to stay at the club.
