Chiefs fail in late bid for Brodie Retallick

The Chiefs have confirmed they approached All Blacks legend Brodie Retallick in a bid to secure his services.

The 28-year-old is free agent after his Kobe Steelers sabbatical was cut short by the COVID-enforced cancellation of the Japanese league.

Sitting on a four win, two loss record when Super Rugby stalled, the Chiefs had certainly found their feet under Warren Gatland.

And with the revised domestic competition now just a month away,  they were almost delivered a timely boost, with Gatland confirming he’d approached Retallick about to his old team, albeit unsuccessfully.

“That would’ve been a bonus,” Gatland told Newshub.

“We had a conversation with him, but he’s down on the farm in the Hawke’s Bay and he’s having a bit of a break with his family there.”
