Post Toulon going for Savea
Having lost Radradra to Bdx, Toulon are reported as going for Julian Savea, .....good for him... he either gets a gazzump or a move, either way a benefit to his future
It should be said that Savea is currently out of favour with AB selection, but a loss nevertheless ...
It is in french but merely states the intention ...

Him going just saves everyone a problem, he has little chance to be an ab again. I’d guess even the hurricanes will benefit if he goes, I’d rather have Aso over him.

How did Savea fall so out of favour with the All Blacks in the first place? It wasn't so long ago he was terrorising the French in particular.

Form. He’s been average for a few years now. So many young, explosive options coming through.

A v impressive record and was omitted from AB squad in Aug last year which wasn't long ago.

Only 27 year old and I think that you may be missing the point Loosie given the recent well publicised concern expressed by the AB hierarchy concerning exodus and the example that it sets and intent to prevent escalation etc

This is quite an example should it happen which is only tentative at the mo.

Mate, missing what point? He’s been average for ages, some say extremely lucky to be starting on his super team, so probably knows his days are numbered, so going north to secure his future. Good for everyone, especially Aso.

I know you’re going to tell me that the sky is falling on NZ rugby again, but bro, I’m still exactly the same yesterday as I am today concerning players leaving NZ. He’s not a star player anymore, not even close. If Ben Smith was leaving I’d be a bit more concerned, but even then he’s getting on so no worries.

Not even a starter for the canes anymore, dropped from the blackness again. Perfect time to head north, nothing left for him in the south anymore. Good luck to him, served NZ and the canes well.
