Beauden Barrett still struggling with a concussion

Beauden Barrett has spoken up with Newwshub about his injury which has been plaguing him for two months, still feeling the effects of a head knock suffered on 2021’s northern tour.

In November, the All Blacks flyhalf was hit in the head during New Zealand’s loss to Ireland in Dublin, he was forced to miss the match against France

Barrett was seen on Thursday in Auckland, kicking balls into the Viaduct as part of a sponsor’s flugtag event.

“They build all sorts of craft and fly off the wharf and see who can fly the longest over water, and that landing spot,” Barrett says. 

“I landed my ball at 55 metres, so if they can beat that, I’d be so impressed.” 

“This time last year I was in Japan playing for Suntory, so it’s nice to have a sunny summer in New Zealand – and it’s the first one with [daughter] Billie, so she’s also enjoying it.”

Speaking to Newshub, Barrett says he’s still struggling just over a month out from the start of the Super Rugby season.

“[I’m] still sort of getting over a few ongoing issues from the Irish game,” Barrett continues. “I’m taking it very lightly, and will hopefully get on top of it soon.

“But I’ve certainly had a well-rested time off.”

“I’m pretty confident I’ll get back for the start of the season,” he adds. “At the moment, [I’m] just taking it very lightly.”
