Beauden Barrett, current opening of Suntory Sungoliath spoke of the importance of Eddie jones as a consultant coach of said team that disputes the Top league from Japan.
The former All Blacks 10 was forceful in praising the current England Head Coach and assistant on his Japan team.
“Eddie has had a lot to do with Suntory rugby and he’s been very good to me on a day-to-day basis,” Barrett said. “When you have something to say to me, they are like little pieces of gold. His understanding of the game is exceptional. He’s been quite involved, certainly at the beginning of the season. “
In addition, the New Zealand opening said: “It is good to receive that from someone who is not there every day. He’s on the outside looking in and giving good information. “
Lastly, Barrett referred to the All Blacks and said in Rugby Pass: “I have no doubt that I was not the best 15 for the All Blacks last year. Especially with Jordie (Barrett) and Dam (Damian McKenzie). I could understand the way we wanted to play. Moving forward, there is no hiding the fact that Damian, Jordie and Will (Jordan) are playing great rugby. I always put the team first, but I guess that 10-15 was a system choice. I have a great desire to be better than I have been before in the All Blacks jersey 10. “
