    Renowned Coach Dave Alred Takes Star Player Beauden Barrett Under His Wing

    By Charlie Bravery

    Dr Dave Alred MBE, well known for his coaching ability and coaching of high profile players such as Johnny Wilkinson, Johnny Sexton and George Ford, now adds New Zealand star kicker Beauden Barrett to his star-studded list.

    Dave recently teamed up with Beauden Barrett for a coaching session in New Zealand – which can be seen on Beaudens Instagram- here.

    In a recent post, he states that he’s been “creating a repair structure for Beauden and has had two awesome sessions with him” over in New Zealand.

    Dave is proud to work with some of the best and Beauden Barrett is no different. He is one of the most successful kickers in todays game. In 83 appearances for New Zealand, Beauden has racked up a total of 649 points, 36 tries, 149 conversions and 55 penalty kicks.

    Working alongside the wisdom of Alred, Beauden hopes that he can take his kicking to the next level for the All Blacks and the Blues going into the new Super Rugby season.

    Whilst down-under, Dave has also been working with Queensland Reds kicker Carter Gordon. He’s been taking Carter through a long rehab road back to playing.
