The Blues have revealed the plan to integrate Beauden Barrett back into rugby as the All Blacks star visited his new Super Rugby teammates at training today.
Assistant coach Tom Coventry said Barrett, who is still a month or two from taking the field had been overseas recently but had spent time with the teammates in pre-season.
Coventry said there was a plan for Barrett to play in two club games and potentially a hit-out with the development side as he fulfilled the ‘return-to-play’ protocol
Hooker James Parsons said having Barrett at training was exciting for the players.
Meanwhile the Blues will take on the Crusaders at 6.05 tonight at Eden Park.
In other Super rugby matches tonight, the Rebels will meet the Waratahs at 8.15pm.
Tomorrow, the Sunwolves face the Chiefs at 3.05pm, the Hurricanes play the Sharks at 6.05pm while the Brumbies meet the Highlanders at 8.15pm.
On Sunday, the Lions take on the Stormers at 1.05am.
