'Barrett at his best is on another planet'

Former All Black Nick Evans says fly-half Beauden Barrett "at his best is absolutely on another planet".

The former Harlequins fly-half, who retired at the end of this season's Premiership, was speaking to Chris Jones and Ugo Monye on 5 live's Rugby Union Weekly.

Evans said: "Look. Beauden Barrett is probably the most dangerous unstructured player in the world.

"He's got the pace, he's got the ability, he's got that nous to just ghost into gaps and he's always playing on the front foot.

"I think he's (Owen Farrell) a fantastic player and one of the form players in world rugby but Beauden, when he's at his best is absolutely on another planet."
