Wing

Bio

It was a sad time at the end of the 2018 season when the Hurricanes club had to say goodbye to one of its best performers after Julian Savea took up a contract with French club Toulon.

After 120 appearances for the Hurricanes over eight seasons, Savea will be reembered as one of the most devastating wingers ever to play in New Zealand.

Known affectionately by his many fans as 'The Bus' Savea ended his Hurricanes career with 52 tries to his credit.
