RugbyU: All Black boost as Barrett resigns

PARIS, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News -29th Augst,2016) - All Black hopes of defending their World Cup in Japan have been handed a massive boost after in-form playmaker Beauden Barrett re-signed a deal with the New Zealand rugby federation through until the end of 2019.

Barrett, a try scorer in last year's Rugby World Cup final, also renewed links with his Hurricanes Super Rugby club and his province Taranaki. It means he will also be available for the All Blacks when the British and Irish Lions tour next summer.

"I love playing for the All Blacks and representing my country in the black jersey and I'm loving my footy at the moment," said Barrett.
