Nonu set to return

Thursday, July 17, 2014

WELLINGTON - Ma'a Nonu's itinerate Super Rugby lifestyle continues, this time with a return to the Hurricanes.

World class All Blacks midfield back Nonu, 32, will leave the Blues after signing a one-year deal with the team he represented for nine seasons.

The departure of Hurricanes coach Mark Hammett to Cardiff next season appears to have prompted the widely anticipated move, following a breakdown in relations between the pair in 2011.

Nonu and All Blacks hooker Andrew Hore were axed by Hammett, sparking the departure of fellow-Hurricanes stalwarts Piri Weepu and Hosea Gear.

Nonu, 32, played a season for the Blues in 2012 before shifting to the Highlanders a year later and then back to the Blues for 2014.
