All Blacks star Jordie Barrett has committed his future to New Zealand and Hurricanes after signing a new deal at least until 2022.

The decision follows despite his brother Beauden announcing his departure from the Wellington based club. However, Jordie's new deal has an option to switch Super Rugby clubs after next year.

"There is a really good mix of youth as well as experienced leaders in the Hurricanes squad and I feel like this is the best place to develop my game," said Jordie.

"Staying in New Zealand rugby is really important to me. I'm enjoying playing alongside my mates and I've got further aspirations and goals I want to reach while I'm playing in New Zealand."

Jordie made his debut with Canterbury in 2016 and moved to Hurricanes a year later. In the same year, he went on to make his debut for the All Blacks in the June series clash against Samoa and has gone on to play for his country 10 times including the Rugby Championship game against Argentina on 20th July.

"Congratulations to Jordie on his decision to re-sign with New Zealand Rugby," said New Zealand head coach Steve Hansen.

"He's an outstanding, talented young player who has soaked up everything he can in the All Blacks environment and grabbed every opportunity with both hands.

"He has a big future in the game and we look forward to seeing his career grow over the next few years."
