Beauden Barrett has taken a chilly plunge in the swimming pool with former rugby player Israel Dagg.
Israel Dagg and wife Daisy visited the Barretts before Beauden's big return to Super Rugby tonight.
Barrett's wife Hannah Laity posted video of the big chilly plunge to her Instagram account.
Dagg takes the plunge first, wearing just boardshorts while the temperature outside is a chilly 15C.
