Beauden Barrett Will Win His 100th All Blacks Cap In Wales’ Match Against New Zealand

Posted by

When New Zealand takes on Wales in Cardiff on Saturday, Beauden Barrett will make his 100th appearance for the All Blacks.

The 30-year-old fly-half will try to extend the All Blacks’ 31-game winning record against Wales, which began in 1953. Barrett will become New Zealand’s 11th centurion after his eighth appearance against Wales.

“I can’t speak more highly about his contribution as a person to the black jersey,” said head coach Ian Foster.

Barrett’s brother Jordie will start at fullback in a lineup that differs significantly from the one that thrashed the United States last weekend.

Brodie Retallick returns to partner Sam Whitelock, who leads the visitors at Principality Stadium, for his 90th cap. Props Joe Moody and Nepo Laulala have also returned to the starting lineup, joining hooker Codie Taylor.
