Former World Rugby Player of the Year, Beauden Barrett will make his return to rugby with the side that kicked off his rugby career.
Barrett is set to turn out for Coastal Rugby Club in what could prove to be one of the biggest games in Taranaki club rugby history, according to Newshub.co.nz
A report from Newshub revealed that Barrett will play his first game of competitive rugby in five months on April 4, running out for his home club before turning out for the Blues for the first time on April 11 against his former team, the Hurricanes.
Barrett would likely face off against younger brother Jordie in his Blues debut having been out of action after taking a sabbatical after the World Cup - a clause that was included in his All Blacks and Blues contract.
The All Blacks and Blues first-five hasn't played for Coastal in 10 years and club chairwoman Janet Fleming was proud to have him back.
"We love the fact that Beauden loves coming home," Fleming told Newshub.
"The entire Barrett family have long been loyal supporters of Coastal and we always enjoy having them back."
