Jordie Barrett out for 'probably the rest of the year' with injury

Jordie Barrett out for 'probably the rest of the year' with injury

Jordie Barrett will miss the Rugby Championship due to a shoulder injury that requires surgery. The 20-year-old Hurricanes back will undergo surgery after the injury he picked up in the Super Rugby semi-final against the Lions. Crusaders fullback David Havili has been called up as his replacement.

“While it’s disappointing for him… it’s been a massive year for him,” said All Blacks assistant coach Ian Foster. “He’s done magnificently well in the Hurricanes environment. He’s come in and had a couple of Test matches and started a pretty big one and has done himself proud.”

The All Blacks play their first match in the championship against Australia in Sydney on August 19.
