Black in danger of losing spot in Blues

first_imgRugby Union Blues first-five Otere Black says he’s willing to do whatever it takes to help his team, even if that means being dropped, so Beauden Barrett can switch to 10. Barrett, the Blues’ marquee signing for the season has been copping criticism recently for under-performing for the club, with pundits questioning whether he should move back to first-five. Former British and Irish Lions first-five Stuart Barnes wrote in a column for the Times on Monday that Barrett should switch back to the position which helped him get voted as a two-time World Rugby player of the year. “New Zealand rugby is in danger of turning one of the most original talents in the history of the sort into a liability,’’ wrote Barnes, who slated Barrett’s performance in the Blues’ 26-15 loss to the Crusaders on Saturday, claiming “his most significant contribution [a crucial kick out on the full] played a part in his team’s demise.” But if Blues coach Leon MacDonald does put Barrett to first-five for Saturday’s game against the Hurricanes in Wellington, that would be tough on Black, who has been playing well, as he’ll pay the price of losing his place in the team because of Barrett’s poor performances. While some may feel it’s not working to have Black at 10 and Barrett at 15, the Maori All Black believes it’s a setup that can work. Last weekend’s game against the Crusaders was one of the highlights of the Super Rugby Aotearoa season. The win to the Crusaders felt like a test match at times and for a while it looked as if the Blues would win in Christchurch for the first time in 16 years. – Stufflast_img read more
