'It's one of those childhood dreams' - Beauden Barrett explains what it means for brotherly trio to all start for the All Blacks

The Barrett family are gearing up for another historic weekend in Auckland.

Beauden, Scott and Jordie will knock off more history in the first French Test at Eden Park tomorrow when the trio start for the All Blacks – the first trio of brothers to do so in the black jersey.

Beauden said it's been a moment all three have waited for.

"It's one of those childhood goals or dreams you have when you're running round the back lawn pretending to be Christian Cullen or Tana Umaga, or whoever it was back then, and it's come true. I can't wait to get out there with them."

But the playmaker admitted it wasn’t all dreams and rugby in the Barrett backyard – there were a couple of tears from the youngest All Black brother too.

"There were many times where [Jordie] would be steaming in with a cricket ball, crying at the same time trying to get us out."

No doubt there will be a few tears on Saturday just before the 7:30pm kick off - but they’ll probably be coming from the stands instead.
