I know this is likely to be unpopular, but in my opinion, Jordie Barrett is unacceptably error prone this year. I am NOT saying he isn't a good player when he is playing his best, but he has been far from his best this year, for the Hurricanes or the AB's. A lot of what I am seeing is unforced errors, errors in judgement, and poor decision making. I believe this to be due to the pressure of being included in the AB's so fast and having to absorb a lot of learnings in a short period of time. He seems cluttered, almost like the Dan Carter of mid 2015. He has played some amazing Rugby but my overall impression of him this year hasn't been nearly as positive.
I don't doubt he should be able to turn it around, but right now I feel he doesn't quite have it together.
Was always going to happen, he would have a down patch. Doesn't help that he has had to play 3 different positions.
Dare I say it his style of play doesn't suit the Hurricanes, he has a bit more of a regimented style then the way the Hurricanes play. Would probably fit in well with Goodhue in a midfield pairing.
