World Cup-winning former All Black Richard Kahui signs with Western Force
Kahui, 35, has joined the Force at their Hunter Valley hub after undergoing a two-week quarantine period and will be available for Friday’s round three game against the Queensland Reds at Suncorp Stadium.
Western Force head of rugby Matt Hodgson said Kahui’s addition was invaluable because of his experience.
“His knowledge of the game, defensive ability and the level of professionalism he brings to training will be huge for our season, we can’t wait to see him out there in the blue and black,” Hodgson said.
“It’s not just his on-field exploits that we’re excited about, as his insight and winning mentality are sure to prove invaluable for the entire team.”
Kahui’s career has predominantly been at outside centre although he was on the wing during the All Blacks‘ 2011 World Cup success.
He helped the Chiefs subsequently win twin Super Rugby titles before his lengthy stint with Japanese Top League outfit Toshiba Brave Lupus.
