    Barrett set to make history at Loftus?

    2018-02-21 09:25

    Pretoria - All Blacks and Hurricanes flyhalf Beauden Barrett could make Super Rugby history against the Bulls at Loftus on Saturday. 

    The Hurricanes may not choose the 26-year-old for their first match of the season due to the fact that he has not played in any of the pre-season warm-up matches and that he arrived late in South Africa, but if Barrett does play, he stands the chance to become just the fourth player in history to score 1 000 Super Rugby points.

    Barrett is currently on 998 Super Rugby points, meaning that he will reach the milestone if he lands a penalty or conversion - or scores a try - on Saturday. 

    The only other players to have reached 1 000 Super Rugby points are Dan Carter (1 708), Morne Steyn (1 431) and Stirling Mortlock (1 036). 

    If Barrett is not included in the match-day squad for Loftus, then he will look to his side's clash against the Jaguares in Buenos Aires next weekend.

    The Hurricanes are expected to name their side on Thursday for Saturday's match will kick off at 17:15.
