When Jordie Barrett signed his last contract with New Zealand Rugby almost a year ago, a clause was included that would allow the fullback to change clubs in Super Rugby after a 12 month playing in Hurricanes. That period of time is coming to an end and, according to New Zealand media, the rest of the teams in the oceanic country would be very interested in having it.
Although the CEO of the Wellington club, Avan Lee, said in a chat with Stuff that Jordie “is happy with his current club” and that “they are sure that he will continue in the future”, there is the possibility that, from next season, crack play on Chiefs, Crusaders, Highlanders, or Blues …
In that case, he would return to wear the same shirt as his brother Beauden, who in 2021 will move his rugby to Suntroy Sungoliath, a team that competes in the Top League of Japan.
However, aware of the good present of the player who has accumulated 17 test matches with the All Blacks, Lee also acknowledged: “We know of the interest of other clubs. I think the four other teams competing in Super Rugby Aotearoa would be happy to have Jordie. “
