Elsewhere, Julian Savea is delighted to be back on New Zealand soil as he pushes for a deal in 2021 plus Kelly Brown is on the move from Saracens.
What’s in the news

What’s on social media
It was unsurprising to see this classic try from Blues scrum-half Finlay Christie named try of the round in Super Rugby Aotearoa. This is a lovely watch.
Try of the Round.
How could it not be this ripper from @BluesRugbyTeam?
