According to the tvnz.co.nz website, Barrett's effort is the best recorded by a Kiwi, beating the 60 metre penalty kicked by Dan Carter in 2006 against the Springboks at Loftus Versfeld.
What made Barrett's kick even more impressive was the fact that the ball was still had yards on it after it passed through the uprights.
