All Blacks star Jordie Barrett was kicked out of the MCG after allegedly skulling a beer during the third day of the Boxing Day test.

Barrett, 22, and another man, 23, were allegedly asked to leave the venue by security on Saturday, according to Stuff. 

‘Police evicted two men from the MCG about 2.50pm on Saturday 28 December for behavioural issues,’ a Victoria Police spokeswoman told Daily Mail Australia.

‘The 22-year-old and 23-year-old, both New Zealand nationals, have been evicted and have incurred a 24 hour ban from the MCG.’

Social media users who claim they were at the famous cricket ground said Barrett was removed from the venue for skulling a beer.  

One man said he was sitting ten seats away from Barrett when the New Zealander was spotted by a fan.

‘He had half a beer and the boys chanted “skull”,’ the man said, adding that Barrett only had half a beer when he complied with the chants. 

‘Barrett presented as calm and at no stage was arrogant or non-compliant,’ the man said.

‘At no point did Barrett appear intoxicated just enjoying a day in the sun supporting some fellow Kiwis on the big stage.’

Others called the whole situation  ‘bulls***’ and claimed ‘he did nothing wrong’.

One cricket fan told Stuff his nephew got a photo with the footballer.

He said Barrett was extremely approachable accepting an autograph and a picture’.

‘Kicked out of the cricket for basically no reason at all. Can’t believe that he couldn’t enjoy a day out with his mates,’ the man said.

Fellow All Blacks player Brad Weber tweeted the hashtag ‘Justice for Jodie’ after he found out about what had taken place.

Barrett’s brother Beauden simply retweeted the comment but did not add anything further to explain what had happened.
