Beauden Barrett's struggles off the tee have been laid bare by some in depth goalkicking statistics.

All Blacks star Beauden Barrett has been rated the worst goalkicker in international rugby in the past five years.

This was stated by South African website goalkickers.co.za.

While it's no secret the talented playmaker has had his troubles off the tee, statistics now reveal just how bad he has been, with the two-time World Rugby Player of the Year (2016 and 2017) ranking dead last of the 52 kickers ranked.

The 28-year-old has kicked 83 out of 118 in those competition matches in that time, for an average of 70 per cent, with his 'value added' being -16 - essentially meaning his work off the tee has actually cost the All Blacks 16 points.

The 83-test first five-eighth-cum-fullback has mostly relinquished the goalkicking duties to Richie Mo'unga in the last two years, and the Crusaders pivot makes the top half of the rankings, coming in at 23rd spot, according to WalesOnline.
