As reported in August, former Highlanders and All Blacks hooker Andrew Hore has come out of retirement to help Southland.

The 36-year-old hung up his boots at the end of 2013 after winning 86 caps for New Zealand.

Southland lost hooker Jason Rutledge to a long-term injury, with Hore now linking up with the ITM Cup side as cover.

They take on Tasman on Wednesday and Manuwatu on Saturday.

Hore's last competitive match was New Zealand's dramatic late victory over Ireland in Dublin last year, when they finished the year unbeaten in 14 Tests.

He did however play for the Barbarians against England back in June.
