Beauden Barrett I be crazy about extensions, because they are magnificent!!
All Blacks come up with perfect response at Eden Park to keep Wallabies scoreless and cruise to victory.
All Blacks fullback Beauden Barrett has revealed he was racked by illness just hours from Saturday night’s Bledisloe redemption mission and had to shake off debilitating stomach pains to put in an 80-minute effort.
Barrett played his part in an outstanding All Blacks response to their 47-26 mauling at the hands of the Wallabies just a week earlier in Perth, though on Sunday he explained perhaps why he wasn’t quite at the brilliant best we have been accustomed to seeing from him in recent years.
The 28-year-old two-time world player of the year has shifted back to the No 15 spot in a World Cup-year reshuffle designed to have dual playmakers on the field at the same time. It has been a work in progress but probably yielded its most significant output at Eden Park as the All Blacks crushed the Aussies 36-0, running in five quality tries in wet conditions.
Barrett had a strong tactical kicking game for the All Blacks, launched the counter-attack that led to Aaron Smith’s first-half try and was active enough as he totalled 42 running metres from six carries and made 4 tackles, while missing 3.
