Former Hurricanes back Jayden Hayward has signed with the Western Force for the next two Super Rugby seasons.
Hayward, 25, is the third overseas player to sign with the Force under new coach Michael Foley and joins former Cheetahs fly-half Sias Ebersohn and former Blues scrum-half Alby Mathewson.
"Jayden's been a frontline centre for Taranaki in the ITM Cup over a number of years and is a young player determined for regular game time in Super Rugby," Foley said.
"He's a player that provides versatility in the centres."
Hayward has represented both the Highlanders and Hurricanes at Super Rugby level.
