Barrett weighs up Blues rugby approach

WELLINGTON - The Blues say they're not after Beauden Barrett.

Barrett says he's considering their advances.

The Super Rugby future of one of New Zealand's brightest talents is causing conjecture for a second straight year.

Hurricanes five-eighth Barrett took several months to weigh up his options last year, ultimately deciding to sign for another season in Wellington after considering an offer from the Blues who ultimately lured rugby league playmaker Benji Marshall across the Tasman.

A similar scenario is unfolding although Barrett says he is keen to make a decision between the same two teams next week, after the Hurricanes have played their final regular-season game.

Blues coach Sir John Kirwan this week said the Blues had decided they wouldn't pursue the brilliant 23-year-old and would aim to retain playmakers Ihaia West and Simon Hickey for next year.

However, Kirwan's line didn't ring true on Wednesday when Barrett confirmed a Blues' offer was "in the pipeline", which he will discuss with his agent.
