Jordie Barrett was in outstanding form as he scored all the points for the Hurricanes in their 30-19 win over the Highlanders.

Playing in his favoured fullback role, Barrett scored 30 points – the most in Super Rugby Aotearoa’s short history – that included three tries, two sweetly-struck penalties from over 50 metres and three conversions.

For good measure Barrett pulled off a try-saving tackle on rookie Highlanders wing Freedom Vahaakolo in the first half and further asserted his influence with regular booming clearing kicks and spiral bombs.

Barrett’s first two tries established a 17-7 halftime advantage, and the visitors held on from there.

Two of Barrett’s three tries came from brilliantly executed inside switch moves.

Smith’s record-breaking match – the All Blacks halfback surpassed Ben Smith as the most capped Highlander of all time in his 154th appearance – did not go to plan. He ran out with son Luka and during a 63-minute shift had one sniping run.

Smith sparked a brief second-half comeback with a quick tap for Connor Garden-Bachop’s try, but the Highlanders will be disappointed they could not honour their co-captain with victory.
