Brodie Retallick Rugby World Cup 2019: New Zealand name Jordie Barrett at fly-half for first time as Brodie Retallick returns

Brodie Retallick I be crazy about plug-ins, because they are nice.

Utility back Jordie Barrett will make his first appearance at fly-half for the All Blacks against Namibia in their Pool B clash in Tokyo on Sunday, while Brodie Retallick has returned from injury earlier than expected.

Coach Steve Hansen chose just two specialist fly-halves in his World Cup squad in Richie Mo’unga and Beauden Barrett, who has been playing full-back in a dual playmaker game plan with Mo’unga wearing the No 10 jersey.

Hansen said prior to the tournament there was a likelihood that his utility backs – including Jordie Barrett, Ryan Crotty and scrum-half TJ Perenara – could play the pivotal role in pool games against the tier-two nations. Perenara will provide cover off the bench.

We’ll tell you what’s true. You can form your own view.

“Jordie can play multiple positions in the backline and we’re confident that he’ll responsibility well,” Hansen said.

“He has all the skillsets required and we’re looking forward to seeing him play there.”
