Jordie Barrett kicked a sideline conversion of Asafo Aumua’s 76th-minute-try and gave the Hurricanes a 29-27 victory over the Blues in their Super Rugby Aotearoa clash yesterday.

Barrett’s conversion upstaged older brother Beauden, who was making his first appearance for the Blues in Wellington after he moved North this year following nine seasons with the Hurricanes.

It was also the Hurricanes third successive victory in the competition and brought them to 12 points, one behind the second-placed Blues.

The Blues had beaten the Hurricanes twice already this year, once in the full Super Rugby competition before it was halted in March because of the coronavirus outbreak and then again in the first week of the New Zealand-only competition.
