Saturdays Test at Soldier Field will be Beauden Barretts 47th as an All Black but it will be a day of firsts for the Barrett family.Beauden is now an old hand at the haka but when the record-breaking New Zealand side go through their pre-match routine, he will be keeping half an eye on his younger brother Scott who is set to make his debut for the All Blacks against Ireland from the bench.If they feature on the field at the same time, they will become the 45th pair of brothers to win All Blacks Test caps but it will also be the first time fly-half Beauden has played alongside second-row Scott in a competitive match.They grew up together but their professional rugby paths went different ways and it has taken a match in Chicago -- 8,339 miles away from their home in Taranaki -- to finally unite them.In the middle of the darkest winter in New Zealands Pungarehu, floodlights lit up the night sky above a dairy farm to enable the young Beauden Barrett and his four brothers to play rugby at every available opportunity.It was Beaudens mother Robyn who installed them and this weekend she will sit in the stands at Soldier Field and watch her son, the worlds best fly-half, start for the All Blacks with Scott waiting patiently on the sidelines.It has been a week to end long-standing unwanted records in Chicago and on Saturday, for the first time in 55 years, two different sets of brothers feature in the All Blacks squad as they prepare to face Ireland.Back in 1961 it was Ian and Don Clarke who featured alongside the great Colin and Stan Meads in New Zealands eventual 13-6 win over France at Eden Park. But come Saturday afternoon this feat is likely to be matched as Julian Savea and Beauden Barrett are joined in the squad by replacements Ardie Savea and Scott Barrett.Ardie, three years Julians junior, already has nine caps but for Scott, this is a step into the unknown.Rugby has always been in the Barrett blood. Beauden is one of eight siblings with father Kevin -- a former Taranaki player of some regard -- and mother Robyn keeping a watchful eye over their five sons and three daughters.The other three Barrett brothers are also talented rugby players. Jordie is in Chicago as New Zealands tour apprentice, while Kane, the oldest, has played for the Blues and Blake is also on Taranakis radar. Come Saturday they are set to have two All Blacks to their family name with the possibility of another in the not too distant future.Were one big family in the All Blacks, Beauden told ESPN. Its just awesome to have a couple of siblings. The opportunity to run out side by side, its going to be a proud moment.Watching on at Soldier Field will be Robyn who decided to fly in at the last minute. Its a long way from where they grew up Taranaki, but the two Barrett brothers will look right at home in the famous black jersey.

NEW YORK -- There is only so much a coach can do to change a defense in a few practices. Game plans can be adjusted. Schemes can be tweaked. Lineups can be shuffled. Some different players can be given more opportunities to contribute.Notre Dame plans to do all those things when it play its first game Saturday since coach Brian Kelly fired defensive coordinator Brian VanGorder, facing Syracuse at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. Kelly put former Purdue defensive coordinator Greg Hudson in charge and said he has been more involved with that side of the ball this week, too.Ultimately, though, what the Fighting Irish (1-3) are hoping will improve a defense that is on pace to be one of the worst in school history is less about Xs and Os and more about mind-set and attitude.I think a lot of guys were out there tense, tightened up and werent playing loose, safety Drue Tranquil said. I think weve seen a lot of guys let loose this week and its been a real positive attitude.Considering Notre Dame allowed 38 points in a loss to Duke last week after the Blue Devils scored 38 points in their two previous games, it is safe to assume just about any offense would pose a challenge to the Irish right now. Syracuse (2-2) presents in some ways a familiar test for the Irish.First-year Syracuse coach Dino Babers, a former Baylor assistant coach under Art Briles, runs a version of the spread offense used in Waco, Texas. In their opening game, Notre Dame lost to Texas in overtime as the Longhorns debuted their Baylor-style, up-tempo offense under new coordinator and former Briles assistant Sterlin Gilbert. The Orange run a lot of plays (345, fourth-most in FBS), but they havent had much of a running game and overall their 5.76 yards per play ranks a so-so 68th in the nation.Need to work on being consistent, running back Dontae Strickland said. We can go from scoring in 20 seconds to a three-and-out.The Orange have had their own issues stopping opponents. The Orange rank 113th in the country in yards per play allowed at 6.39, nine spots behinnd Notre Dame (6.dddddddddddd18) on the list.What else to watch for when the Fighting Irish play Syracuse for the eighth time, a second straight at the home of the NFLs Giants and Jets:CALLING OUT KIZERNotre Dames DeShone Kizer has been one of the best quarterbacks in the country, ranking 14th in in efficiency rating (167.55) and yards per attempt (9.4) and running for a team-best five touchdowns. He also threw an interception late against Duke that set up the winning field goal and had a fumble earlier in the game.Kelly said this week Kizers standard of play is not where we want it to be for him, which sounds a lot like a coach who knows he needs his star quarterback to play like a star quarterback to overcome a shaky defense.CATCHING ONMaryland graduate transfer Amba Etta-Tawo leads the nation with 706 yards receiving on 40 catches after setting a school record with 270 yards receiving in a victory against Connecticut last week. He is just the third player in Atlantic Coast Conference history to have multiple 200-yard receiving games in the same season, joining Torry Holt (NC State, 1998) and Craphonso Thorpe (Florida State).If they double team me it opens up doors for other guys so that would be good news, Etta-Tawo said.In three seasons at Maryland, Etta-Tawo 61 passes for 938 yards and three touchdowns.NEW YORKS COLLEGE TEAMThis is the last of a series of games at MetLife that former Syracuse athletic director Daryl Gross signed up as part of branding the Orange New Yorks college team. Yes, the stadium is in New Jersey, but its just across the river from Manhattan and the home of the New York Jets and Giants.The strategy made sense from a marketing perspective. Syracuse has a large alumni base all over the New York metropolitan area, but it took marquee games against Southern California, Penn State and Notre Dame out of the Carrier Dome. The Orange have lost all three of the previous games at MetLife.
