28 September: Robbie Fruean joins Bath

Robbie Fruean has linked with his old New Zealand coaches at English club Bath. He will move north once he completes his stint with Hawke's Bay in the NPC. Kiwi coaches Todd Blackadder and Tabai Matson are making a rapid impression at Bath, who sit third on the English Premiership table with three wins and a loss from the opening month. Fruean is held in high regard by the coaching duo who returned him to the Crusaders in 2015 and 2016 after a deal with the Chiefs was blighted by illness. Fruean started with the Hurricanes in 2009.

27 September: Filipo leaves Lions

Wellington Rugby and Losi Filipo have mutually agreed to the termination of his contract. Filipo today withdrew himself from the Wellington Lions 2016 Men's NPC squad in a move he hopes will go some way toward helping the victims of his assault move on with their lives. With support from his representative and the New Zealand Rugby Players’ Association Filipo approached Wellington Rugby this afternoon seeking a release from his playing contract and, after discussions the parties agreed that the termination of his contract was the best outcome for all parties.

22 September: Taniwha out to tame Lions

Northland's search for a Men's NPC win comes back to the last ground on which they tasted victory. They take on an in-form Wellington at Toll Stadium in what shapes to be a decisive fixture. Despite not registering a win so far in 2016, the Taniwha could still make the playoffs......all they need to do is simply win every one of their four remaining matches. That begins with a clash against Wellington who are running second in the Championship. They're coming off the back of a 24-10 win over Bay of Plenty, a side that beat Northland just two weeks ago 52-25. Read more here

17 September: Ardie was ordained to be star, says Julian

Big brother Julian Savea has long known that little brother Ardie was destined to be something special. The signs were obvious from as far back as Julian can remember. What struck him as unusual was that there was a four-year age gap between them and yet Ardie would be out on the field with him every week when they were kids. "There wasn't a particular game but just the fact he kept playing on my team which was about three years older than what his age was," says Savea senior of when he first realised the talent his younger sibling possessed. read more here
