Julian Savea returns to Hurricanes

Julian Savea returns to Hurricanes”

The 29 year-old winger returned to New Zealand earlier this year during the Covid-19 pandemic, having finished up with French club, Toulon.

Ardie Savea does not want to think too far ahead but the Wellington Hurricanes loose forward says his heart is pumping at the thought of a Pacific Islands team possibly joining a revamped Super Rugby competition next year.

He will fill the place of Ben Lam, who is moving to France.

"He's been working pretty hard by the sounds of it".

Barrett included that while he was dissatisfied at the Hurricanes' fans responses, he was usually unpleasant with all booing at rugby video games. "They attacked really well, they went to the middle of the field and got some of our bigger boys caught in the middle and attacked with their backs".

The Hurricanes have a bye this week and Holland doesn't expect to see Savea play against the Chiefs in round nine either, but he said, he's keen to play some footy.

The Crusaders' remarkable 36-game unbeaten home streak stretches back to the Hurricanes' visit in 2016.

"It gets me up because you see so many Super Rugby teams, the All Blacks, all across the world it's Pasifika dominated and it's awesome to see that were giving back".

"Ngani is an optimistic man".

The Hurricanes will have a much-needed bye this week ahead of their final two games of the Super Rugby Aotearoa season, where they now sit in third on the ladder. While standout midfielder Peter Umaga-Jensen is ok after suffering a head knock in their win over the Crusaders on Saturday night.
