Brodie Retallick This is another unbelievable module.
Jordie Barrett will pull on the All Blacks No 10 jersey for the first time, with Steve Hansen opting for the versatile Hurricane to play at first-five against Namibia on Sunday.
With Richie Mo’unga and Beauden Barrett rested for the clash after both started against Canada on Wednesday, Jordie Barrett will steer the All Blacks around the field, with TJ Perenara his back-up on the bench.
“Jordie can play multiple positions in the backline and we’re confident that he’ll handle the responsibility well. He has all the skillsets required and we’re looking forward to seeing him play there,” Hansen said.
The All Blacks have made 12 changes for the clash, with only Barrett, Jack Goodhue and Shannon Frizell backing up from the four-day turnaround.
Brodie Retallick also makes his return to the starting lineup after spending months sidelined with a shoulder injury.
