The Bus is back.
Two years after leaving the Hurricanes the former All Blacks winger Julian Savea is returning.
The 29 year old Savea has spent the past couple of seasons playing for French club Toulon where his initial two-year contract was reportedly worth $1.65 million a season however he took a pay cut to remain on Toulon’s books this year but ended up leaving the club in May to return home.
With winger Ben Lam heading to French club Bordeaux having played his final game for the Hurricanes in the side’s surprise win over the Crusaders there’s now a vacancy at the Hurricanes.
“Looking foward to rejoining my brothers…blessed to get this opportunity and very grateful!,” Savea said on social media.
