The Barrett brothers are in the news again.

Jordie for his Hurricanes' form, his withdrawal from the NZ Under 20s to Australia and his chances of an All Blacks' call‑up in June; Beauden for his supposed weaknesses in goal kicking and defence.

In fairness, those aspects of his game were highlighted out of the UK, where the Lions will be keen to identify any chink in the armour of the world's best player.

Jordie will continue to kick goals tonight against the Brumbies in Napier, and Beauden will attempt to school his opposite, former Waikato and Southland No 10 Wharenui Hawera, as the Hurricanes seek to demolish the Brumbies'

Both Barretts will be instrumental and calm as ever, for the Hurricanes tonight.

The Brumbies, indeed, may fancy their chances of attacking the Hurricanes in the forwards, with the home side missing their chief lineout winner and top hooker.

They will be seeking another staunch defensive effort.

The Hurricanes will take on the Brumbies at 7.35 tonight while Waratahs will face the Kings at 9.45pm.
