All Blacks winger Julian Sacea is reportedly keen to play in Europe after falling out of favour with New Zealand head coach Steve Hanson.
According to The Rugby Paper, Savea could join Harlequins on a short-term deal to fill the void by Marland Yarde, who is apparently about to join the Sale Sharks after being left out of Quins’ squad in recent weeks.
Savea will play for the Barbarians against the All Blacks in London next month and it is understood that he is keen to stay on in Europe to play more rugby.
He’d then have to return to New Zealand for his Super Rugby commitments with the Hurricanes
Julian Savea put a tweet out denying the story.
Fake news guys 👎🏾 https://t.co/GkcZEHghLR
