Friday’s clash between the Melbourne Rebels and the Hurricanes is certainly going to be an interesting one.
The Rebels, under the tutelage of Dave Wessells, formerly of the Western Force, has guided his new club to the top of the Australian conference with four victories, their only loss came to the Waratahs in difficult conditions in Sydney.
The Australian franchises are hoping to improve on their dismal record against the New Zealand teams last year and the first opportunity will be the Rebels’ clash with the Hurricanes.
The Hurricanes are currently preparing for that fixture and some pretty incredible footage has emerged on social media of Jordie Barrett practising some kicks in training in Wellington.
The young star smashes over two ‘banana kicks’ from almost impossible angles and it provides just a small glimpse into the talent which the 21-year-old possesses.
