Scott Barrett is offering a reward to any 'bounty hunter' who can track down his stolen ute

Someone check Nic White's garage.

Scott Barrett’s ute has been stolen and the All Black is not happy, calling for a bounty hunter to track it down. 

Posting photos of the Toyota SR5 to social media, the weapon of a lock simply said there’ll be a “reward for the bounty hunter” who finds it and to hit him up if you've seen it. 

There are no official leads yet, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it was Australian half-back Nic White. Barrett went viral a couple of weeks ago for ‘shushing’ the Aussie during the All Blacks 38 - 7 win over the Wallabies at the MCG. 

Perhaps White is enacting a bit of revenge for being embarrassed by Barrett (em-Barrett-sed, if I may) and went for the low blow of stealing the ute which the All Black holds dear. 

Just to be clear, I am totally taking the piss and highly doubt White is a car burglar. 

As to why he shushed the opposing half-back, Barrett said it was pure adrenaline pumping through his veins. 

"I guess in the heat of the battle there were a few words about holding him at the breakdown," Barrett said, as reported by Newshub

"I probably cleaned him out a couple of times earlier, so it wasn't the first time he had complained to the referee. It is not usually like me. Normally I go back to halfway and worry about the kick-off.”

"It's probably the heat of the battle I guess. A few words of advice to the ref so I was quietly trying to say something there I think."

Barrett will have to worry about his ute while he’s on the other side of the world. He and the rest of the All Blacks World Cup squad are off to England today for a friendly match against the Springboks at Twickenham on the 26th of August. 

After that, it’s all guns blazing as our fellas open the World Cup against host nation France on the 9th of September. Go get it boys.
