All Blacks star Jordie Barrett successfully dabbled in league four years ago, but won't switch codes like SBW

All Blacks star Jordie Barrett is one versatile athlete, having played a number of different sports throughout high school.

Barrett, 21, is a talented cricketer and played a one-off rugby league final for his school Francis Douglas Memorial College 1st XIII four years ago.

Which his team won against Hawera High School to claim the Willie Talau Cup.

With two All Blacks teammates Ngani Laumape and Sonny Bill Williams making successful transitions from league to union, Barrett was quick to shut down any thought of him making the move to the other code.

"That was one single game of rugby league I played and that was at school," Barrett told 1 NEWS in a press conference in Auckland this afternoon.

"So it is a very distant memory.

"It is certainly not something I am looking at, at the moment."

Barrett played at No.7 in the Taranaki high school final and put in a number of thunderous hits on his Hawera rivals in 2014.

NRL and Queensland Origin star Kalyn Ponga has voiced his interest in switching codes in the future and possibly donning on the All Blacks jersey .

"Obviously, that (playing for the All Blacks) would be a huge goal, if I was to come back to union I'd want to tick," Ponga told Marae.

Jordie has been named to start at fullback for the All Blacks in the second Test against the Wallabies at Eden Park.

Barrett has played five Tests so far for the All Blacks.
