Up by the roof.

He's a very confident young man is our Jordie and he has every right to be confident, he's a very skilled player and it's not his confidence that we need to get right, it's just his understanding and his pace of how he wants to play.

He wants to do it at 100 miles an hour, we've talked about that before in the media and he's making good progress so pretty excited of where he's going to end up one day." 2.

The Barretts will become the first trio of brothers to appear for the All Blacks in a World Cup match and first trio of brothers to start a World Cup game since Elisi, Manu and Fe'ao Vunipola represented Tonga against Scotland in 1995.

Jordie, aged 22, is the youngest and least experienced of the three brothers with 11 appearances for the All Blacks, scoring 42 points.
