Hickey re-signs with Bordeaux-Bègles

Date published: June 14 2016

Bordeaux-Bègles have announced that fly-half Simon Hickey has put pen to paper on a new two-year contract, but is unavailable until November.

The 22-year-old playmaker is contractually bound to play for Auckland in the Mitre 10 Cup, which kicks off in July and runs until October.

That means Hickey will miss the start of the 2016/17 Top 14 season.

Hickey, a former New Zealand U20 representative, joined Bordeaux-Bègles at the end of 2015 after impressing for the Blues in Super Rugby.
