New Zealand international Jordie Barrett will extend his stay at Hurricanes after signing a new one-year deal with the Super Rugby club.

Barrett started his career with provincial side Canterbury in 2016 and went on to make his debut for Hurricanes in 2017 and has made 50 Super Rugby appearances for the club.

The 23-year-old's Test debut for the All Blacks came in 2017 and has gone on to play 17 games in which he scored 11 tries. He also played in five World Cup games for New Zealand last year in Japan and had represented New Zealand Under 20 side in the past.

“Jordie has become an integral part of this Hurricanes squad. Off the field, he holds massive respect and has excellent input into how we play,” said Hurricanes head coach Jason Holland to the official website of the club.

“On the field, he has taken his game to the top level and has thrived on the added responsibility bestowed upon him this season.”

Hurricanes are positioned third in the Super Rugby Aotearoa table with four wins from six games and will face Chiefs and Highlanders in the final two rounds on 8th and 15th August respectively.
