Beauden Barrett may have questions about the All Blacks Rugby Championship test against the Pumas in Christchurch this weekend as He took a hit in Tuesday’s practice.

The nature of Barrett’s injury is unclear, but the All Blacks playmaker left Crusader Base Rugby Park early from practice to return to the team hotel for an evaluation.

Three weeks ago, Barrett fell badly to the neck after trying to catch a lob during Mbombela’s game against the Springboks.

The following week, Barrett came off the bench in the All Blacks victory at Ellis Park, and Rich Moenga was promoted to the starter and played a major role.

If Barrett is ruled out this week, Taranaki and Blues playmaker Stephen Perofetta could make his Test debut from the bench.
