Julian Savea HURRICANES RUGBY

Wanted: Julian Savea

Hurricanes and All Blacks winger Julian Savea is a target for the Crusaders ahead of the new Super Rugby season next year.

The 23-year-old has enjoyed a sensational start to his career in Test rugby, scoring 13 tries in 12 matches, and finished with seven tries in Super Rugby last season.

Savea plays alongside his brother Ardie in Wellington and would have to make a decision as to whether to move away from his hometown club.

Yet to sign a new contact with the Hurricanes, Savea admits he is not ruling out any possibilities and focusing on The Rugby Championship, but he is aware of the Crusaders interest.

"I'm not sure at the moment. Obviously I'm keeping my options open, but I'm just focusing on footy right now and I'll deal with that process when it comes," said Savea to TVNZ.

"For my mind there is no timeline at the moment.

"They [the Crusaders] have [shown the interest], but like I said I'm just focusing on footy and when that time comes I'll deal with it."
