Off to the Blues: Ma'a Nonu

It seems that Ma'a Nonu's long search for a rugby club next season is over, with reports in New Zealand saying he has joined the Blues.

It seems that All Blacks centre Ma'a Nonu's long search for a rugby home next year is over, with reports in New Zealand saying he's joined the Blues.

Radio LiveSport revealed that the 31-year-old has snubbed a big money offter from Clermont and will join Sir John Kirwan's outfit ahead of 2014.

Furthermore, All Blacks coach Steve Hansen was quoted as saying that he was relieved that the experienced twelve won't be heading overseas.

"It might be a weight off his shoulders," Hansen said when fielding questions on the centre.

"I just think it's great that he's here, it makes him available for us. He's playing very, very well at the moment.

"He's in a very good head space and physically, he's in good shape."
