Transfer News: Another All Black confirms move to Europe
All Black Luke Whitelock has signed a three-year deal with Top 14 side Pau.
has been a fringe international since making his debut for the All Blacks against Japan in 2013, and after having to wait four years between his first and second test cap, was named captain in a non-test against a French XV in Lyon in 2017, and then again against Japan last year.
He has since gone on to feature in seven test matches, linking up with older brother Sam in all but two of them.
Pau’s capture of Whitelock’s signature adds to the club’s strong Kiwi presence, as the squad already features seven New Zealanders – Jamie Mackintosh, Daniel Ramsey, Peter Saili, Colin Slade, Benson Stanley, Frank Halai and Tom Taylor – and is coached by former All Blacks first-five Simon Mannix.
