Stormers fans show their support during their 2012 Super Rugby match against the Hurricanes at Newlands.

Beauden Barrett celebrated his 21st birthday with a record-setting display of goal kicking during the Hurricanes' 66-24 rout of the Melbourne Rebels, but the party will have to wait.

Barrett's family squeezed in a birthday breakfast in Wellington yesterday as he prepared to rejoin the All Blacks for training.

"I've got a big family, so a big breakfast and just a quiet one before we head into camp. There won't be any yardies or anything tonight," Barrett said after kicking a perfect 10 out of 10 attempts at Westpac Stadium. "It's a bit of bad timing, but I might be able to do something in July with my mates on holidays."

Those mates may yet be disappointed if the Hurricanes make the Super Rugby playoffs, running from July 20 to August 4.

Notably, Barrett's 21 points on Saturday night broke several franchise records previously held by Jon Preston, including his 1997 mark of 152 points for the season.

Preston, who has been helping Barrett with his kicking, would have smiled as his young charge landed all nine of his conversion attempts, eclipsing the previous mark of six shared by Christian Cullen, Willie Ripia and Jimmy Gopperth.

It was only the second time the Hurricanes have scored nine tries in a match and their total of 66 bettered the 64 scored against Northern Transvaal in 1997.
