WATCH: Everyone is talking about this sublime and ridiculous one-handed pick-up from Beauden Barrett
This is simply ridiculous from Beauden Barrett.
Rugby fans all around the world are fully aware of what the All Blacks fly-half is capable of but he has surpassed any expectations with this sublime, one-handed pick-up in the first half against the Lions.
New Zealand are hoping to extend their unbeaten home record and Warren Gatland's Lions are certainly up against it - and it doesn't help when you see opposition players playing with such skill and flair.
Barrett left rugby fans all over the world in awe with this.

It seems almost inconceivable that 12 months ago in NZ, Beauden Barrett was still considered an impact player. World's best now. No doubt.— Ross Harries (@rossharries1) June 23, 2017

Not being funny but that from Beauden Barrett was one of the most skilful things I've seen on a rugby pitch. One handed pick up on retreat— peter simmons (@Mr_Peteroy) June 24, 2017
