After all, it's not every day you combine with two brothers in an international Test to score a stunning team try.

But in their first international match starting together, that's exactly what the Barrett brothers did to see Beauden fly over in the far right corner to score in the 22nd minute of the 52-11 win.

Jokes aside, Ngani Laumape pays credit to the humbleness of the Barrett brothers.

Beauden threw the ball to his left to set up Scott to make the break but instead he went into contact, offloading to Jordie in space who took the ball into the French 22 - Beauden finished off the attack moments later.

Scott admitted it wasn't something the trio had practiced in the backyard growing up.

Beauden, Scott and Jordie will become the first trio of brothers to start for NZ at the same time.

"I didn't know it was Jordie," he said.

The lock told media today he allowed himself to appreciate the moment a little bit.

"I guess when I was walking back to the halfway line after it [I thought], 'yeah, that was pretty cool'," he said.

"But you can’t think about it too much in the moment, it's about focusing on what's next and that sort of thing - but it was pretty awesome!"
