    It's official - Beauden Barrett is heading to the Blues

    It's official - Beauden Barrett is heading to the Blues


    After eight seasons including a Super Rugby title at the Hurricanes, the All Blacks first five is upping sticks to the Blues, who have been in the search for a quality first five for 15 years.

    The deal, which extends his contract with NZR to 2023, also includes a number of special clauses including an extended break after this year.

    He will start with the Blues mid next year and has a Japan playing break built in for some point in his contract.
