All Blacks superstar Beauden Barrett says he has “bounced back” well from his latest head knock and is ready to return to action for the Auckland Blues in Super Rugby Pacific.

New Zealand fly-half Barrett, who only recently returned to action following a concussion suffered against Ireland in November, was forced off in the Blues’ 32-25 victory over the Highlanders in Dunedin on March 26.

“I was very relieved to wake up on the Sunday morning after the game feeling clear in my head. I just had a very sore neck,” Barrett told news website Stuff.

“It’s all good, especially considering where I’d been, and the things I did to get back to playing.

“I’m confident in being back playing and psychologically it’s great to get back out there. There was a little scare from that Highlanders game, but I’ve bounced back from it well.

“There is nothing to be concerned about from a head point of view.”
