Jordie Barrett may follow brother


After finally revealing that Beauden Barrett has signed a deal to move from the Hurricanes to the Blues for the next four years it now looks like the Blues may have his brother Jordie in their sights as well.

Jordie Barrett is out of his contract and are looking if he will stay of take his brothers lead and move to another franchise.

There has been talks that the Highlanders and Crusaders are interesting in the All Black but the word out in New Zealand is that the Blue may try and draw him to Auckland.

Jordie is a very versatile player as outside back or in the midfield.

With the loss of Melani Nanai to Europe the Blues will be very happy if Jordie do decide to leave the Hurricanes and come to Auckland.

With Ben Smith retiring the Highlanders are also looking for a replacement and Jordie will suit that spot for them perfectly.

It is going to be an interesting few weeks to see if Jordie will stay, or follow his brother to he Blues or going elsewhere.
