Injured All Blacks Jordie Barrett is preparing to return to the field after off‑season shoulder surgeries, the long process of repair, rehabilitation and rebuilding fitness is nearly at an end.
Barrett hopes to hit the park for the Hurricanes in round three of the new Super Rugby season, all going to plan, and team requirements. He is just entering his first week of full‑contact training.
Barrett has tried to use his extended off‑season productively.
As well as throwing himself into some extra university study and spending some bonus family time, the 20‑year‑old has piled on 6‑7kg of muscle which might prove useful for what he has in mind for 2018.
The Hurricanes will begin their Super Rugby Season on the 25th of this month.
